inspired by the idea that people can learn to read a city like a book, photographer marc olivier decided to focus on finding and photographing all of the letters of the alphabet in the art, architecture, food, and city life of paris. the project has been years in the making, but marc is now selling affordable versions of his photos on his blog staring at $10. what i love most are the multiple versions of each letter- that way if you want to collect a group to spell a friend’s name, etc you can choose a few different styles if the same letter occurs twice. if you’re as smitten with the collection as i am, you can buy a full collage print of all of the letters ($80) on archival paper as well. i’m thinking about doing a few of these as gifts for friends, but because of the affordable price they’d make perfect “just because” purchases as well. click here to check out the full collection and shop online. thanks, marc!
