A single matted leaf, measuring approximately 20 by 15 inches in the mat, and containing an alphabet hand-calligraphed in red and black by Dorothy Mahoney, author of The Craft of Calligraphy. The letters are based on Victor Hammer's famed Uncial design, and are written out on five lines. Y and Z are centered on the leaf and flanked on either side by further calligraphy indicating the Uncial basis for the letters, the calligrapher, and date. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory #
