ABOUT







I. Paulini

Italian copper engraver who lived in the 16th century. Around 1570, he created intricate initial caps, with each letter telling a story (the R in the link shows Romulus and Remus in Rome). His inspiration comes from mythology, and often involves angels, mermaids, snakes, and fruits. Spamula shows three letters of his alphabet, each letter encapsulating a mythological episode from the Methamorphoses of Ovid.
