ABOUT







Walter John Pearce

Letterer from the art nouveau era. In some fonts named after him, the name William J. Pearce seems to have crept in. Author of the art nouvea style book Painting and decorating (1898, Charles Griffin: London). Examples of his alphabets include these Modern Block Capitals and these Gothic Capitals. These pictures appeared in the 1910 book by Lewis Foreman Day entitled Alphabets Old and New, For the use of Craftsmen [other editions of this book date back to 1898].

In 2012, the former alphabet was digitized by Dick Pape as LFD Block Capitals 213. Another free digitization is W.J. Pearce No. 213 by Klaus Johansen.
