Twenty Six Rusty Letters on Two Old Posts, 2010.
Kim Schoenberger, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
It has become an international, internet-based collaboration with around 30 participants in seven countries each year since 2010. Calligraphers, metalworkers, ceramicists, graphic designers, textile artists and more, the A Letter A Week Exhibition brings together diverse and beautiful interpretations of the Western alphabet.
