The alphabet presented in this article is taken from a 19th-century Victorian alphabet album.
I chose it for two reasons,
The first one, simply because I find it especially original and elegant.
The second one is because it has a singularity, the narrowness of its characters.
I find this interesting because often when I have to prepare the two letters of a first name and a name to embroider together on a towel or even for a relatively small cushion, it causes me problems. Indeed, I often find that the simple juxtaposition of the two characters lacks cohesion and takes up too much space in the width.
By using the characters of this alphabet I find the result more satisfactory.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to embroider two letters, so I would like to illustrate my point with the picture below.
Indeed, by juxtaposing the 2 letters V and P, for characters of 10 cm height, the width of the embroidery will be reduced by 5 cm and visually forms a more compact block.
