David Clemesha’s Hand-Lettered Nursery Rhymes
Little lambs, little reds, little pigs, and a little hand-lettered typography.
By Maria Popova
We love children’s books, especially clever remixes and twists to them — from finding philosophy for grown-ups in children’s classics to The Little Red Riding Hood reimagined as an animated infographic to modernist fairy-tales by today’s leading authors to quirky coloring books for grown-ups. So we love the work of San-Diego-based elementary-school-teacher-turned-artist David Clemesha, whose remarkable, vibrant hand-lettered nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fables are equal parts whimsical and artful.
