Ladies of Letters is a wonderful collaboration between super talented typographer Carla Hackett and letterpress extraordinaire Amy Constable aka Saint Gertrude and their latest project is called ‘Alphabet City’. Together they’ve created these beautiful two colour, A5 cards. Carla hand draws them in pencil and ink, then Amy prints them on Wild 450gsm on her letterpress machine called Gordon. Each card is signed, numbered and lovingly packaged in cellophane wrap.
The proceeds from the sale of the cards goes directly to supporting the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, such a brilliant creative idea for a well-deserving cause. Ladies of Letters share: “Our launch project, Alphabet City, has a small and achievable financial target of $1000, which is enough to set up a community Share-a-Book library. This can make a huge difference to people in a remote area where literacy levels fall below the national average and access to reading material may be limited.” Better still, Amy and Carla have chosen to keep donating to the charity even after the project is finished.
