Book Description

1 Sep 2005
What thoughts, feelings and treasures lie behind the letters of the alphabet, one of the most widely used tools of communication for the past centuries?
In this beautifully designed and produced book, twenty-six commercial writers and twenty-six of the UK’s leading graphic designers team up in pairs to to create fresh, imaginative and inspirational written and visual interpretations of the alphabet.
Each team was given a letter of the alphabet to explore in the form of a graphic poster and words. The book also includes diary entries about the creative process from each team. The result is a fascinating, original and multidimensional interpretation of the alphabet, produced by people who have had a close association with letters for most of their lives.
26 Letters: Illuminating the Alphabet is the product of a unique and exciting collaboration between writing and language group 26, the ISTD, the British Library and Cyan Books as part of the London Design Festival, that will help inspire writers, artists, children, students and the public to look again at how we can use, enjoy and learn from writing and design.

More About the Author

I live in Scotland, on the edge of the Highlands. Over the years I've written fiction for children, young adults and adults. My two most recent novels, THE WITNESS and THE RECKONING, were both shortlisted for the Royal Mail Scottish Children's Book of the Year Award (in 2008 and 2009 respectively). A third young adult title, THE ARTEFACT, is currently (September 2011) nearing completion.

One of the best things in my writing life is being on the board of the Edinburgh International Book Festival (the world's largest). Every August I charge my batteries in the company of nearly 800 other writers, in the magical tented village that springs up in Edinburgh's Charlotte Square. I also work in the business world as a writer, trainer and coach, and write business books as JAMIE JAUNCEY. The most recent is ROOM 121: a masterclass in writing and communication for business, co-authored with John Simmons. When I'm not writing or training I play the piano with various Scottish musicians and bands.
