"Living Letters ABC" is an alphabet book for kids and adults alike. This book embodies my love of typography with my passion for textile design and handcrafts of Mexico. I worked with artisan, Silvia Díaz of Chiapas, to bring to life my ink sketches, watercolors, and digital drafts. Using traditional embroidery techniques combined with my designs, she created plush versions of my crazy creatures. Then, I photographed each one and illustrated environments unique to each character. I hope the Living Letters bring you joy from A-Z.
