Alphabet Designed By Godfrey Sykes.

Suggestions In Decorative Art


Among the many designs which have been issued by the South Kensington Museum authorities is the alphabet which we have illustrated here to-day. The letters appear frequently among the decorations of the museum buildings, especially in the refreshment rooms and the Ceramic gallery, where long inscriptions in glazed terra cotta form ornamental friezes. The alphabet has also been engraved to several sizes, and is used for the initial letters in the various official books and art publications relating to the museum, which are published by the Science and Art Department. - Building News.
