How to ‘Print’ Type with a Needle and Thread

This inventive CMYK alphabet has been hand embroidered by Evelin Kasikov, a London based designer with a very analytical approach to craft.

Evelin found that by stitching two overlapping CMYK thread colours at 90 and 45 degrees, an ‘analogue halftone’ is created.

Originally the alphabet was created as a typographic experiment but once the technique was refined it enabled the creation of some elaborate and fantastic typographic posters like the one at the bottom.
