On the ordering of the alphabet
With a maiden name of Tuttle, I spent my childhood at the almost-end of the line. Never the end, which would have been interesting. There was always Z or V behind me. My best friend was A. I never thought much about marriage, but if I did, I wanted to move up the alphabet. So, I married Walcott. Therefore, I reverse order my lists whenever possible.
On the rationale behind the project
I started the text art alphabet when A Letter A Week ended, The end of a letter road…. No more beautiful letters. Sadness. Hey, wait, I could make my own.
