Working on moving Reusable Art made me aware that some categories had not seen a new image in years. Fancy Letter K Images had not been updated since November 2009. Granted, not a lot of folks start sentences with words beginning with the letter K. But, I have a new one to share with you today. Yay!
This K drawing is from a 1889 work by Árminius Vambéry. Like many wealthy people of the late 1800s, Vambéry traveled extensively to exotic locations. Like so many of them, he documented his journeys in a book. His book included a number of drawings, including this letter image.
The K is drawn in black lines on a white background with plenty of room to add a little or a lot of color. The letter K itself isn’t all that ornamented but it is enclosed with some flowers and leaves. This square K drawing has a bit of a look of iron work to it – see the little bands at the base of the leaves?
There’s a number of other letters that were included in this book and have a very similar look to them. When I add them to Reusable Art, I’ll be sure to interlink them with this K Drawing so that you could use them together if you would like.
