This grand compilation presents more than 250 depictions of the alphabet's changing forms, from handsome Roman letters cut in marble and delicate English courthand to sixteenth-century Greek initials and modern styles inspired by Gothic, Japanese, and other forms of writing. In addition to its intriguing survey of historical trends, this book also offers richly illustrated reflections on the artistic ability involved in rendering the alphabet. An introductory essay traces the evolution of the English alphabet, followed by a wealth of old alphabets arranged in order of date. Among the selection of modern alphabets are samples that offer evidence of how the surface — wood, stone, leather, mosaic — and the writing instrument — chisel, needle, brush, stylus, pen — can affect the character of the lettering. An assortment of ampersands and numerals concludes the volume, along with an index of illustrations arranged by artist, country, material and process, and style. Artists, graphic artists, historians, and anyone with an interest in calligraphy will appreciate the historic sweep and artistic range of this treasury of lettering.

An exquisite facsimile edition of a turn-of-the-century illustrated children's ABC of animals. This charming volume is a facsimile of a children's ABC of animals first published in 1899. Commissioned by Glasgow publisher Blackie & Son, it contains a short description and a full-page grisaille drawing for each animal, beginning with A for armadillo and ending with Z for zebra, with vignettes accompanying each letter of the alphabet. It was the first publication by Carton Moore Park, who specialized in animal subjects, and whose artistic style was strongly influenced by Japonisme. The quirky drawings, with the modern-looking crops and close-up perspective, made the book stand out from all other alphabets of the day. The plate of the hippopotamus, for example, conveys the great bulk of the animal by forcing it up against the frame, while the image of the bat has flying almost in the reader's face. The picture of the leopard is one of several plates that reveal Moore Park's interest in Japanese art. When the book was published, contemporary critics acclaimed the artist's strong handling and accurate anatomical knowledge, as well as his profound appreciation of the habits and movements of the animals depicted and his close sympathy with his subjects. One wrote that, 'It is certainly the best book of the kind we have ever seen.' A hundred and twenty years after it was first published, this exquisite rediscovered book - very much of its moment but modern in spirit - will enchant and educate a new generation of children. Animals included: A for Armadillo * B for Bear * C for Cat * D for Dromedary * E for Elephant * F for Fox * G for Guinea-Pig * H for Hippopotamus * I for Ibex * J for Jackal * K for Kangaroo * L for Leopard * M for Mice * N for Nylghau * O for Otter * P for Porcupine * Q for Quagga * R for Rabbit * S for Sheep * T for Tiger * U for Unicorn * V for Vampire * W for Weasel * X for two Extraordinary Animals (Anteater and Ornithorynchus) * Y for Yak * Z for Zebra
