This historic Initial Letter is a woodcut depicting children at play. It is from an entire alphabet cut in wood by Jost de Negker. The original woodcuts were never used in books but subsequent copies by other artists or printers were.
Each letter is beautifully presented in a solid wood gold frame and a generous 6 ply mat with a hand-painted gold beveled edge. There is a hook for wall hanging or an optional brass easel stand for desk and tabletop display. Attached to the back is a story card describing the history behind the letter.
