ABOUT







C. van der Post Jr

Book shop owner in Utrecht, The Netherlands, in the 19th century. In 1855, he published the popular lettering model book Alphabeths voor steenhouwers, schoonschrijvers, schilders, graveurs, lithegraphen. In his book Nederlandse Belettering, Mathieu Lommen deduces that the alphabets in this book were developed in the atelier of lithographer P.W. van de Weijer in Utrecht in cooperation with van der Post.
