Letter Art, AlphaBooks: Y is for Yoors

 

The Gypsies
Jan Yoors
Simon & Schuster 1967

Bought from Discover Books via abebooks.com

Genre: Travel, Personal Narrative
New Find
Did I read it? Yes. Be warned. You will have Cher singing Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves in your head for the duration of the book.
Horse Factor: Some horse trading, mostly life in horse-drawn wagons.

Process Notes: Progress! Yesterday & today were 99% Inkscape, including watermark. I had to open them in GIMP to convert to JPEG. Since this appears to be standard, I’m not going to mention it anymore. My designs are still basic, but I am starting to see what can be done in vector graphics.

This year, I’m using names of horses in books as well as authors of books. Otherwise, I’ll run out of letters. I’ve already had to with Z, both this year & last. Which books would you choose?

Thank you for reading,
