Evelin Kasikov is the graphic designer who created this Handprinted Alphabet consisting of 26 lowercase sans-serif letterforms, 4 colours and 26773 stitches. It is an experiment in handmade type, ‘printed’ with needle and CMYK-coloured threads.
“I began by setting up a 4-layer halftone grid with 10 crosses per x-height. The screen for each colour is set at a different angle: Cyan 105˚, Magenta 75˚, Yellow 90˚ and Black 45˚. The challenge was to construct a coherent character set upon this grid. Each letter consists of four layers, Cyan being printed first and Black last.”
