Greetings cards for any occasion. Celebrate birthdays, weddings, special occasions or just send a personalised note to a friend or loved one.

LONDON has a wealth of diversity, drama and detail. Using my background in architecture, and my trusty camera, I've been picking out a hidden alphabet right across the city, from the City itself, through the inner boroughs and right out to Barking, Enfield and Richmond. What results is a unique look at London, one which finds the intimate places, intriguing patterns and features, and revels in the details of the city that are so often missed by those who live, work and visit there.

Chose greetings cards, postcards or prints - all are a unique keepsake of this great city.

There is an entry for each letter, with options within the listing for the different cards.

If choosing multiple postcards, you can save time by choosing the 'up to 10 postcards' product, and let me know what word you want. We can email about your choices, or allow me to choose a selection for you!

Postcard size London Letters. A wonderful way to spell out a name or message. Richard Crutchley has been very helpful. Once my order was received they arrived by post the next working day. Excellent service.

About

Chicago to London

On a trip to Chicago, I came across a series of postcards spelling out 'CHICAGO' made up of elements of the great city's architecture. I tried to replicate the cards whilst in the city, and loved it so much I made it my task to create a London alphabet in my own city.

After more than a year, I have over 400 images with every letter of the alphabet covered, and a wide geographic expanse of this great world city also covered.

The letters are more than an alphabet though - they focus on the details in the city that are all around us, and bring to light the diversity and richness that we take for granted. People connect with the locations, try to link their loved ones with the places they knew, and spell out things special to them. It brings a smile when people recognise the places in the photos, or come to me with news of letters they found around them. In the end it's about where we live and who we live with, and cherishing the details in the world around us.

I hope you enjoy collecting the letters and the story of the architecture in this place.

Hello. Welcome to this corner of ETSY.

This shop sells my photographic images of London, but taken in a unique way. The images show letters formed in accidental or quirky ways, found in the swirls in building decoration, spontaneous street art, public art, street furniture and any other conceivable place I find them. It reveals an intimacy and richness in the city that passes most of us by, and it's absolutely unique to my photography.

I hope you're inspired and buy! Thanks x.
