Earlier in the week, when I posted about the extra consonant that turned a simple care-label on a belt into a flight of fancy about a glittery 'finfish', it made me think of the Lost Consonants series created by author and artist Graham Rawle.
I must have come across his Lost Consonants in the Guardian newspaper's Weekend magazine over a decade ago and in case you're not familiar with his work I thought I'd link you up today.
The 'lost' consonant idea does pretty much exactly what you'd think; but dropping that one single letter ... it makes a world of difference to the meaning! See for yourself ...
I love them; word play combined with collage is a little bit of creative-heaven for me!
Wouldn't the idea make a fun starting point for an art journal page? Or a scrapbook title? I'm sure there's some fun to be had there!
But instead .. I'll leave you to enjoy more examples on Graham Rawle's website where you can find links to his other works and his books.
