Ornamental Alphabets and Initials is a vintage book by Alison Harding that was published originally by the author in 1983 but this is a Thames and Hudson U.S. publication of 1984. It is an ex-library softcover edition with a laminated cover. The lamination is coming loose at the spine. There are the usual library markings. The nicely illustrated (both color and black and white) pages are in very clean, neat and intact condition.
