alpha beta

My personal project over the last week or two has been centered around a hand drawn patterned alphabet. Ive really fallen in love with hand drawn type all over again. I remember the day at college when my friend Jon came running into the computer room with a copy of Mike Perrys "Hand Job". He found the copy in the College libary, and ive had the book ever since. I just couldnt return it!.It was like the bible of typography to me.

Check the orginal individual letter drawings on my Flickr, Theres also a larger picture which shows all the type. Sweet.

  2. LILY. You are so effing creative. I love this alphabet. Could I, perhaps, use it for the title of my blog? Or if it's not allowed, that's cool too. I just love it!


  3. That is amazing, you are so bloody talented!
    Mike Perry's "Handjob" is incredible aswell, i bought a copy a few years ago, my boyfriend thought it was a dirty book :P

  4. Hey Lily, I've been following your blog for a quite short period of time but I've seen your work. I loove your sketches beacouse they are simple, smart , imaginary and waaay cute, and you're soo creative and actually you have inspired me. Well, I want to change/costumise the title on my blog and make it more fancy and the first person that I thought was you and this alphabet. I'm not sure what am i going to do with it, maybe I'll add some colour, I haven't really thought anything since i wanted to ask for your permission, first. I was wondering if i can use your alphabet. Ofc I'll honor and mention your blog. Anyway, i'm hopefully waitng for your reply. Thaanks in advance , for your time :D


    Don't know how to name it

Baselworld 2016 watches hit a new high at fair The watch industry may be in a bit of a slump yes, sales are down worldwide .but if the models debuting at the hermes replica giant Baselworld watch and jewellery show are any indication, all things are bright and beautiful on the product front.The show wrapped on the eve of Easter and was attended by 145,000 people,
    replica watches a slight decline from last year (8 per cent) mirroring the decline in sales. But what attendees got to see, along with a record number of 4400 journalists covering the event, was just the kind of finesse to keep things ticking over a bit more promisingly.
