Book Arts Tuesday-Letterology
Letterology is a blog by Jennifer Keinard. Here is how she introduces the term:
LETTEROLOGY Letǝrälǝjē | noun 1. The study of characters and symbols of an alphabet representing one or more sounds used in speech. 2. written, typed or printed communication in the form of a document, a book, or manuscript. 3. literature: the world of letters 4. printing a style of letters, text or marks on paper or other substrate. 5. ephemera containing printed text and decorations 6. the intersection of typography, books and design
The above image is from her post on Carnival Keepsakes that she shared for Mardi Gras. And here's another from a post on Victorian word wheels.
Her topics are wide-ranging and her writing is lively. It's a new discovery for me and I look forward to spending more time here.
