Scott Teplin Draws Up ‘Alphabet City’

12.22.09 Will Sherman

Artist Scott Teplin has designed a series of tiny homes that fit inside the letters of the alphabet. Outfitted with slot machines, ice cream parlors, wave rooms and missile silos, the delicately drawn dwellings are more exciting than your average cramped apartment, albeit less practical. Limited edition letter prints for spelling out words or hanging solo are available for $80, while the full collection is bound in 26 signed copies of Teplin’s $2000 book, “Alphabet City.”
