Traveling can be a wonderful experience - visiting the iconic and the hidden gems which make up a country's personality leading to some of the best experiences and insights.
Wanderlust Alphabet series features travel highlights of international cities. The series is an ongoing project made by a Glasgow based illustrator and graphic designer Jack Daly, combining his passions for loves illustration, typography and travel. His first 5 illustrations for the letters A, B, C, D, and E are based on the cities Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dublin, and Edinburgh. In this series, each alphabet letter is created to represent a specific city in the world. Drawing upon eye-striking landmarks, national customs and food, architecture, flags, flora, fauna, and pop culture, he beautifully blends the unique features of each city to form the letters. Even the color tones are warm or cool depending on each city's personality and local spirit. A is for Amsterdam, B is for Barcelona, and D is for Dublin - the series is as much an inventive opportunity to learn the alphabet as well as a way to express city pride.
Daly's alphabet is inspired by his love of travel, and so each letter is based on a city which he has visited. "Eventually," he explains on Instagram, "some might be cities I want to [visit]."
