Description

Writers and lettering artists: two groups of people each passionate about words. How they look, how they sound, how they feel and what they mean.

26 Words: exploring the DNA of language explores the verbal and visual representation of language. Writers from 26 and lettering artists from Letter Exchange collaborated to bring to life an eclectic selection of words. The works they produced are as varied as the imaginations of the writers and artists involved: in turns thought-provoking, profound, exciting and exuberant.

This beautifully designed book brings together colour photographs of each artwork with the stories of how they were made, covering an extraordinary collection of words from acidulate to zaffre. You can see the words and images on our Creation Stories page on the 26 Words website.
