Twenty-six Letters

In Mira calligraphiae monumenta Joris Hoefnagel illustrated the natural elements to the calligraphy created more than 15 years earlier. - Mira calligraphiae monumenta,calligraphy by Georg Bocksay 1561-1568, illustrations by Joris Hoefnagel, second half of the 1590s.

For some years ago Diana Marques wrote an excellent article about the power of letters and the relation between science illustration and letterforms. Something to keep in mind also when we label and/or sign our art pieces. Diana’s article is downloadable by clicking here. Please enjoy!
