An artists' book bound accordion-fold format. Features full-color digital printing and hand-stamping, with at least one page devoted to each letter of the English alphabet. Issued in a manila cardstock envelope with a tack enclosure on one side, and with a creation date on the reverse that is drawn to look like a postage stamp.

"Forty-six copies of this book were letterpress printed, hand stamped, digitally printed and hand bound. The design, content, structure, and actual work was a collaboration between Kathleen O'Connell's book arts and letterpress classes at Middle Tennessee State University and visiting wandering book artists, Peter and Donna Thomas"--Colophon.

"'Letters' was printed at MTSU by the individual participating artists during the 2015 spring semester. The book's creation was a collaboration between all parties, including input from students, though it was organized and steered by Peter and Donna Thomas and Kathleen O'Connell"--Email exchanged with Kathleen O'Connell on June 16, 2015.
