ABC Sampler


Click image to enlarge
A calligraphy sampler: various historical letter styles over a background of Roman letters created with a reed. The smaller lettering was written with black Japanese stick ink and steel pen on a white laid paper.

Quote creating a frame around the outside:

"The letters of the alphabet evolved slowly and organically over centuries of constant use handed from scribe to scribe until they were worn smooth. They are not merely geometric symbols- the characters themselves are a form of art that is a priceless heritage." -adapted
