A century later, this magnificent compendium offers a useful reference for graphic artists and designers in many fields.

Selections include English and Dutch block letters; Roman, German, and French letters; script and Gothic letters; a variety of contemporary letters; foreign alphabets; numerals; and a sampling of monograms and vignettes. The compilation's original intent as a resource for sign painters ensures the eye-catching quality of its contents, making this volume an enduring source of possibilities and inspiration.
