This abecediary is laser cut from 3/16" thick oak ply, measuring 6" by 6" square. While this piece will not stand on its own, it looks great leaning in a bookshelf or hanging on a wall near any typophile's desk. The wood is sanded, but not finished, so I would recommend keeping this decoration inside your home or office.
The modern English alphabet's 26 majuscule forms were set in Bookman Old Style, designed to fit together sturdily by overlapping and connecting serifs. The result is an appealing five-row arrangement of all of your favorite letters, in all of their typographic glory.
According to Wikipedia, the original Bookman typeface was designed as an alternative to Caslon, with straighter serifs, making it more suitable for book and display applications. It maintains its legibility at small sizes, and can be used successfully for headlines and in advertising. Though Monotype's version of Bookman includes the words 'Old Style,' in its title, the near vertical stress of the face places it more in the transitional classification.
