ABOUT







Lewis Foreman Day

Lettering artist and author, 1845-1910. His books include Alphabets Old and New: Containing Over One Hundred and Fifty Complete (1902, B.T. Batsford), which has a large number of historic alphabets, initials, blackletter examples, and new alphabets by the author himself. Other books: Alphabets Old And New For The Use Of Craftsmen (1910, B.T. Batsford, London), Lettering in ornament (B.T. Batsford, 1902), The anatomy of pattern (B.T. Batsford, 1895), Penmanship of the XVI, XVII&XVIIIth centuries (1911, B.T. Batsford, London: Local download), and Nature and Ornament (B.T. Batsford, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1892).

He created numerous pen-drawn alphabets. I am using the descriptive names he used in his own book, Alphabets Old and New: Modern Brush Letters, Blunt Brushwork, Blunt Twisted Brushwork, Japanese Brushwork, Modern Capitals for engraving on metal, Modern Capitals, more Modern Capitals, and yet more Modern Capitals, Modern early Gothic Capitals for engraving on metal, Modern Early Spanish Letters, Modern Foliated Capitals, Modern Gothic Capitals, Modern Minuscule Gothic, Modern Roman Capitals, Modern Roman Italics, Modern Twisted Letters, Numerals (set 1), Numerals (set 2), and Numerals (set 3).

In 2012, Dick Pape created a number of typefaces based on alphabets found in Alphabets Old And New For The Use Of Craftsmen (1910). These include LFD14thCItalian75 (drawn by J. Vinycomb), LFD15thCFrenchRelief91, LFDAlphabetUndOrnamente216 (after roman capitals by Otto Hupp), LFDAsianStencilling205 (an art nouveau stencil based on an original by E. Grasset and M.
