A book that captures the spirit and culture of New Orleans one letter at a time.

Love Letters from New Orleans is a photographic and typographic statement that celebrates the culture of New Orleans, twenty-six letters at a time. The alphabet book has taken over two years to complete. 

Spearheaded by Nessim Higson of I Am Always Hungry studio, the project shows the city in both a positive and provocative light. IAAH / iamalwayshungry is a creative studio that has been recognized internationally and showcased in numerous books and magazines such as Communication Arts and Print Magazine. 

This project is a collaboration of 2 designers, 1 photographer and 1 writer. The contributors hold New Orleans very close to their hearts. They hope to reach a wide and diverse audience to expose aspects of the city that may have been forgotten. This is a thank you to the culturally rich and dynamic city. 

What your pledge goes towards:

Printing the 9 in x 12 in, hard cover, two color on thick matte paper, beautiful coffee table book. We were unable to get a publisher due to the book being too regional.
