Aviary Alphabet: Birdhouses Shaped Like Letters


Spell out your name, display your house number or just enjoy the beauty of typography with this alphabet-shaped birdhouse set by Nishant Jethi. Entitled ‘Living Typography’, the birdhouse series recreates all 26 letters of the alphabet along with numbers 1-9 in hollow, 3D wooden form, with little perches for feathered inhabitants.

Measuring roughly 6 inches in height, each birdhouse is a graphic representation of a letter or number; some letters necessitate more than one entrance, while others have their holes drilled into the sides.

Jethi created the birdhouses in response to the sharp decline in the numbers of house sparrows, calling these friendly little birds “the ultimate groupie to humankind.” The houses provide a safe place to nest and breed for these and other small spaces.
