Another great fancy letter image from a huge book written by Thomas Hill. This time we have a letter A. The A itself is solid black and highly stylized. It is surrounded by delicate doodle-like decorations with make the letter taller and even more interesting. A bit of careful editing could remove some of that height if you needed a smaller letter A image.
Thomas E. Hill published Hill’s Album of Biography and Art in 1882. It included a number of wonderful illustrations and stock print foundry images.
