In a zine catered towards children, the reader is encouraged to find letterforms in pictures of a neighborhood in Providence. Each spread has a monochrome picture and a polaroid viewfinder with a letter printed on it. The reader can then match the printed letter to the picture on the page. On the last page, there is a blank polaroid viewfinder that the reader can take and consequently find letterforms on their own. I wanted to create something to encourage a change in perspective, causing them to be on the lookout for letterforms in the unexpected. Children can use this zine to learn letters in a new and interactive way, helping them to solidify their education in the classroom and encouraging interaction with the space around them.
