East End Letters by Phil Sheffield, 2009. One-off artwork in frame, 50x70cm. £350

The show – which previews tonight at Swanfield Inn, just off Brick Lane in East London – features works by 26 artists, printers and graphic designers – who all take inspiration from the building blocks of the written word: the letters of the alphabet.
