annie vought : paper cut letters

Letters as in real letters written on paper to someone. A friend turned me on to these incredible pieces by paper artist, Annie Vought, after seeing the post on Design Sponge. Annie takes letters she's received or found and enlarges them -- then she cuts out all the negative space around the letters and lines of the paper to produce these powerful and large testaments to the significance of a letter.

From Annie: "Penmanship, word choice, and spelling all contribute to possible narratives about who that person is and what they are like. My recreating the letters is an extended concentration on peoples’ inner lives and the ways they express their thoughts through writing."
