Letter E Print

E for Sitta Europaea and Olea Europaea — Eurasian Nuthatch and Olive

Linocut — Series of 200 — A4

In this project I aimed to combine typography and illustrations, and realised that illustrated letters would have been just the perfect outcome. The Swedish botanist Carl Linneaus developed the Binomial Nomenclature ‘Systema Naturae’ in 1735, and I decided to base the illustrations on his listed species. Each letter is paired with a bird and a tree from his system, with both sharing the same initial.
