guest post // 3d typography.

Hi, my name is Rena Tom and I am so delighted to be guest posting for Erin while she bathes in newborn baby bliss…or is fitfully napping with her little one.

I’m a small business consultant and just founded Makeshift Society, a coworking space and clubhouse in San Francisco, but my true love is that spot where design, process and handcraft meet, so I thought I’d share what’s really making me happy in that arena right now – 3D handmade typography…

The idea for Makeshift came out of having a great, communal design book library. Books are my obsession and innovative typography is a longtime love, so I was thrilled to discover Iwona Przybyla, who created a magnificent pop-up book from two colors of string. Each 2-page spread forms a three-dimensional letter of the alphabet when the pages are held open at 90 degrees.
