Every week, or maybe more, I will be showcasing a letter from the alphabet, not just any old letter though! it shall be one of the many lavishly illustrated letters which can be found in early modern books and pamphlets. I really enjoy these little works of art and think that they deserve to be viewed in their own right....so in the style of Sesame Street...today's letter is A and....well thats it.
A bit of an aquatic theme to kick of my Early Modern Alphabet. These two figures are probably representatons of Triton and Scylla from Greek mythology. I like what looks like water gushing out the top of the A.
