Alphabet Empire

About Alphabet Empire
Alphabet Empire began when I started playing around with some photographs of famous cities by putting them through different filters.

Around the same time, I had noticed that my son had a few different ABC books. I realized that the ABC formula was pretty endless, and super fun to get creative with.

Why not do a series of images going through the alphabet? I started with cities around the world, and moved on to cities around Europe and the USA.

A little bit about me:

I'm a former middle school language arts teacher, summer camp director, and college composition instructor.

I graduated from the University of Miami with a BA in world literature, and recently obtained an MA in folklore studies from the University of Oregon.

I've traveled to lots of places around the world, and lived all over the US. My interests in art, architecture, and history have led me to create these postcard collages, which bring the alphabet to life!

I hope you enjoy browsing the site. Please subscribe to my travel blog and YouTube channel for free educational content.
