Descrizione

This is not so much a sequel to Alphabets Old and New as that is preliminary to this. The earlier volume dealt with the alphabet only, the forms of letters: the consideration is here their use in ornament, the way they have been and are to be employed in decoration. The illustrations (of which a descriptive list is given) are chosen strictly with a view to illustrate, which will account for the introduction of my, own designs: it was not possible always to find the fitting instance, and an obvious way out of the dilemma was to make a drawing. Incidentally, however, the examples of old work here brought together show how universal was the use of Lettering in Ornament, how varied, how ingenious, and at times how beautiful. Haply they may serve as incentives to fresh invention; in any case they are valuable object lessons in decorative treatment.
