In Bologna, Italy in 1839, decorative artist Antonio Basoli published a fantastic set of lithographs for his book, Alfabeto Pittorico (Pictorial Alphabet, or a collection of pictorial thoughts composed of objects beginning with the individual letters of the alphabet). His elaborate architectural drawings of twenty-four letters of the alphabet and one ampersand , became later known as Basoli's Alphabet.

THREE ebooks vol. 5 and 6 by www.mr-cup.com

It always a great pleasure to work on these ebooks, as it makes me rediscover what I have publish on the blog in the past months and it always a big shot of inspiration. Hope you will be as inspired as I am when you discover all these amazing projects I highlight on the blog for the past 6 months.

 

This issue is a double issue, instead of 2 ebooks, you will get only one but twice the size of usual ones... I could have call it SIX instead of THREE but it was fun to design these 2 covers too !

 

It is available here, or with the 4 first issues as a pack here. At the same time, I put all the other THREE ebooks at a lower price. Buying these ebooks is the best way to support the blog and make me want to share even more !

 

Selection of some of the 206 pages issue...
