Julie Shaw Lutts – Handwriting Analysis- SOLD

8 x 6 x 5

edition of 1




Handwriting Analysis is a work that brings together vintage photo booth photos and handwritten letters. I’ve created the narrative by choosing the photographs and matching them to the handwriting samples which I think their personality align with. Afterward with the help of an expert I ‘analyzed’ their handwriting, and the outcome can be read on the back of each page. I learned may new terms including, ‘Excessive Loops’, ‘Shallow Garlands’, ‘Long Cradle’ and ‘Inflated Upper Zone’.
