Back cover description:

Comprising over 2,000 unusual copyright-free letters, this volume offers graphic artists, designers, needleworkers, and other craftspeople an extremely useful and versatile resource. Seventy-nine complete alphabets, selected from rare late-19th- and early-20th-century sources, feature a splendid array of styles-perfect for attracting attention, making a vivid impression, or simply adding a delightful decorative note.

Choose from delicately flowering capitals, letters bearing fruit, inventive arrow alphabets, needlecraft numerals even intertwined snakes forming letters- along with many other fonts. Needleworkers will particularly cherish the lacy, elegant letters, ideal for embroidery and cross-stitching, and easily adaptable for a tremendous variety of other art and craft needs.

The beauty, versatility, and practical application of these styles make this inexpensive compendium an invaluable resource for studio or workroom.
