Letters in Flight

At the very start of the second alphabet I decided that I would use the letters to create a flock of birds in flight or for the purposes of ALaW 2010 it would be titled Letters in Flight. So I turned each of the 26 letters into a small bird by creasing the letter on the diagonal and then creating wings and a beak and sometimes a tail. So below are the 26 birds.

So below are a few shots of the finished flock in flight.

It has been quite a hard piece to photograph - in 'the flesh' it does come together better - it needs space and you need to be able to walk around it on a plinth.
