Alphabet Book No.1: by Clara

One of the great things about bookleteer eBooks and StoryCubes is their hybrid nature that means they can be simultaneously mass-produced and hand-made. Alphabet Book No.1 is a fantastic example of this.

Each letter was sketched in pencil then painted over by Clara Angus Lane (then aged 3). The painted letters were than scanned and put into an eBook that can be downloaded from the diffusion website here.

I love this book because it has such a hand-made quality to it (and fabulous colours and quirky letters!) yet it can be shared and enjoyed by anyone with an internet connection and a printer. And because you have to make up the eBooks by hand I feel they keep a strong sense of a handmade tangible object – even though they can be printed in their dozens!
