Aries Wan's 'Stereoscopic Stitch' is a project that demonstrates and encourages readers to apply threaded typography to their creative portfolios. Her book includes her hand-designed letters on each page and even includes thread to create the typography with.

Although typography is generally a visual art form, the artist encourages people to "feel [their] type" by applying this technique. Her patterns of stitching creates a 3D image effect on every letter, which is both dynamic and vibrantly colorful.

The stitching involves a variety of colors and lines that are layered on top of each other, creating a shadow-like effect. Wan's project is appealing for all typography lovers. Although typography is usually created through computer generated applications, Wan's project is hand-made and targets anyone who appreciates arts and crafts.
