Album De Lettres, France 1882

20 Jun

These gorgeous pages are all from the French book, Album du peintre en batiment, published in 1882. Needless to say,  I went crazy like a cat in a pile of catnip.

More alphabets inside the post!

All images are from Agence Eureka’s photostream- which is perhaps the biggest gold mine of fantastic book scans I’ve ever come across. I haven’t been able to find how she has come about acquiring all of these, but I’m extremely jealous..but also extremely grateful that she’s sharing them publicly. Have a look at her other archives here.
