      (from, of course) Created by N. Glaise, this typeface chart was taken from Modeles de Lettres: Sur Vingt Tons de Fonds Differents, published by Emile Thezard in 1901. A great example of the typography guides created for printers and sign makers around the fin de siecle, this original chromolithographic plate—taken from a pristine portfolio complete with original ties—shows each letter of the alphabet including a line grid at the “A” to ensure accurate scale. 11 Litho 12"x17"

    Hand Lettering, not necessarily into the style as such

    I am such a sucker for typography and monograms! These trays would look great anywhere in the house, and only $10!
