Carol Belanger Grafton is a familiar name, she has edited several other books of this kind. I stopped counting at 13 titles, there were more. I carry some of her's fine compilations here in both my New Monogram and Alphabets category as well as several of her used books.
When I saw this title I could not resist and I am glad I did not. This is truly a unique collection of Monograms and Alphabets. There are all different sizes and styles here but I want to show you a close up of just one of many. This one grabbed me when I was taking the inside pages condition picture.
Quoting from the back cover of this book
"Animal Alphabets, Architectural Lettering, Exquisite Floral Expressions, the well known, the whimsical and the inspired have been brought together in this Pictorial Archive" (paraphrased a bit)
Bizarre and Ornamental Alphabets has 1,685 Copyright Free letters with no duplicates.
Published by Dover Press in 1981. This is a glossy cover paperbound book with 121 pages.
The condition is very good. The cover edges are very slightly worn but the pages inside are very good. The spine is tight, I don't think this book has been opened very often.
