Hand screen-printed on paper, 26x40", edition of 45.
"In 'A Shifted Alphabet', the letter B is constructed out of the letter A, and C is made out of B, all the way through to Z. It's displayed in boustrophodon which stops you reading like you think you know what's coming, which in this case is good because you definitely won't; The J is twisted like an apologetic drinking straw and the N looks set to attack the set square masquerading as an O. The I built out of a capital H looks more like a pictogram for 'disfunctional crossroads ahead' and the U is the split-second mid-air collision of 3 magpies.
By the time the designers have worked their way through the restrictions imposed on themselves by the previous letter, these are barely letterforms; they tell a story of their own before anything has even been written with them. I love how they sit perfectly between type and image." -Holly Wales
