Oh my, the letter G in all its glory. I’ve only found around a dozen of these to share with you but I think this letter G design is quite interesting. Even better, there are 17 other letters that are similarly sized and from the same original set. They were all included in an 1887 work by William Elliot Griffis. The letters are, no doubt, from a print foundry or the publishing house as they were used in several different works of that period. It’s rare to find so many used in the same book without it being a children’s book on learning the letters of the alphabet.
All of the letters in the set include a black letter with a white and black frame or border. The letter then forms a base for leaves and flowers. This letter G design measures about 1.5 by 2.8 inches and could be used in a variety of ways. Colorize it and you’ll have something even more lovely to add to your scrapbook, mixed media or other artistic creations.
