Description

A Lancaster Alphabet: Letterforms from the Stones of the City, is a study of Lancaster’s hidden architectural lettering that uses these often neglected and largely unseen elements to explore the social history of the urban environment. The twenty-six letters of the alphabet span almost 1800 years of Lancaster’s history, with each letter and its location providing insights into the development of Lancaster’s industry and socio-political development, as well as discussion of the design features of the letters themselves and reproductions of historical documents.

Printed on high quality stocks, perfect bound, hand-stitched with a dust cover, the work was part of a two year study of architectural lettering in the the city. The book includes photographs of each of the twenty-six letterforms, a guide map to their location, and a glossary of architectural and design terms.
