I just found the Peckham Alphabet!

By illustrator Menna Jenkins this alphabet has been made using the familiar colours of burger and fried chicken shops in the area, and there are many references  to life in SE15. Each letter needs a second look, the letter P has the silhouette of a tower block in the background and the letter T can be compared with the abandoned empty cans of Tennants lager.

She says, the signage of Peckham is not subtle, and nor are my letters.

She’s not wrong.

I like them.
