An Alphabet of Ornate Quilled Typography

Just take a look at these beautifully ornate quilled letters. Quilling, the art of creating images with artfully rolled and curled strips of paper is used here by paper artist Sabeena Karnik to create the alphabet from A to S. Hailing from Mumbai India, she is a calligrapher, fine artist and illustrator/typographer specializing in paper sculpturing and acrylic murals. Be sure to swing by her Behance page or follow her on Twitter.
