Pretty Letter J Engraving

As far as letter J’s go, this one might look a bit more like it could be something else. But, this pretty letter J engraving is indeed meant to be the 10th letter of the alphabet.

It was included in a 2-volume French work from 1867 which featured fashionable ladies as flowers. The drawings are more satirical than the sweet little girls and their flowers from A Flower Book but the letters the printer used are wonderful.

There were 13 letters included in the 2 volumes and you can find all of them here – French Printer’s Letters.

The pretty letter J engraving features a letter that is decorated with circles and crosses. Climbing up the J is a grape vine with several bunches of grapes.
