From the Back Cover
Animal alphabets, architectural lettering, exquisite florid expressions, the well known, the whimsical, and the inspired have been brought together in this fascinating, practical, and inexpensive pictorial archive sourcebook by graphic designer and artist Carol Belanger Grafton.
Here is an exquisite collection of unique and evocative lettering dating from an eleventh-century Anglo-Celtic alphabet right up to the present. This new and highly useable material--much of it available nowhere else--is drawn in line with creative precision and is easily transferable for artistic work of all kinds.
The volume contains 1,685 bizarre and ornamental letters (no duplication with any other Dover book), including 50 full alphabets in a variety of motifs that include animals, military, landscapes, silhouettes, religion, mathematics, architecture, and much, much more.
The royalty-free alphabets offer artists, designers, and crafters an indispensable tool for any project requiring imaginative lettering.
Dover (1981) original publication.
