Letters From Ireland offers custom-made alphabet photo art using unique images captured throughout Ireland.
Today I am delighted to introduce you to this creative and imaginative art work, and to offer you a chance to win your very own piece of fabulous art, inspired by my homeland.
Alphabet photo art, or alphabet photography, is the practice of finding letters of the alphabet in architecture, nature, and the world around us. These letters are framed together in a collage to spell out a word or name of your choice.

A Gift Inspired by Ireland
From weddings to housewarmings, birthdays, new babies, or “just because,” a piece of framed photo art by Letters From Ireland makes a unique, thoughtful gift and a distinctive addition to any home.
Initially photographs taken in Italy inspired these artistic creations, but as interest grew a second location was sought for an alphabetic photo shoot.
Ireland was an easy and exciting choice. Images were collected throughout a two week tour of the rolling green hills, winding lanes, and charming cities and towns of Ireland.
At each stop during their Irish tour, the creators of these pictures were blown away by the beauty of the countryside, and the warm welcome, hospitality, and personality of its people. It's always lovely to hear from visitors who have experienced a genuine welcome during their Irish trip.
Inspiration Found All Around
Here is a quotation from their website:
"From the colorful buildings and doorways lining the streets, to the bustling pubs, to the majestic green cliffs and blue waters, Ireland is a country alive with color and character. We had an amazing time collecting this alphabet art, and we hope you will enjoy our photography as a unique perspective into the timeless beauty of this country."
The creators truly discovered Ireland, revealing letters of the alphabet hidden in the unique beauty of nature, architecture, and everyday objects of the Emerald Isle. All of their photos are authentic originals, and are never staged.
But here's the good news. You can create your own unique piece. The process is completely personalized. Choose a special name or word for your frame. Then choose the photographs, frame style, and mat color to complete your one-of-a-kind piece of art.
Inspirational Wedding Gifts
Frame a treasured family name, a new married name, or the name of a child or new baby. Or, choose a word that inspires you. These art pieces make great gifts for weddings, anniversaries, Mother's or Father's Day, Christmas, birthdays, or housewarmings. Your imagination is the limit!
Each piece of Letters From Ireland art is handcrafted using beautiful, high quality materials meant for a lifetime of display. While all of the photographs used to create these stunning works of art were captured in Ireland, all products are made in America, using American materials. Currently, shipping is available only throughout the 48 lower states in the US.
Letters From LLC has generously sponsored a giveaway for Irish American Mom’s readers. Our lucky winner will be awarded one customized frame, which may be personalized by choosing a frame from the Classic Collection, any mat, and photographs.
Photographs are available in color, black and white, or sepia. Any name or word between 3 and 9 letters long may be chosen for this frame.
Fully framed artwork can only be sent to US addresses located within the 48 contiguous states. This is due to the size of the artwork, and high international shipping costs. If readers located outside the USA (or Alaska/Hawaii) would like to enter, the sponsor can send them unframed photographs, but will not be able to send a frame.
