KINDERSLEY, David. ~ Variations on the Theme of Twenty-Six Letters.
One of 500 copies. 18 different alphabets printed in different colours on French-fold variously coloured Strathmore Artlaid and Plan 8 paper. The typeface in Monotype Walbaum. 8vo., original printed wrappers over printed limp boards. Wrappers little crinkled, book block split.
The alphabets are from original 30 x 22 inch drawings printed in black line and individually painted, now in the collections of universities, museums and galleries. Kindersley’s aim was to make these named alphabets and his incredible calligraphic skills accessible to all.
