Candy for the eyes and food for thought
Litterae is a unique collection of 24 high quality cards (full colour, 21x15cm / 8.3x5.9in), with handpicked texts from various Latin authors, translated, commented and calligraphically interpreted.
The fronts of the cards feature the selected Latin quotations, each one in a different, appropriate writing style.
The reverse side contains the Latin text and reference, along with translations (English and Dutch) and additional illustrations.
With the set comes a 36 page booklet providing useful background information on the authors, their work and the chosen fragment.
There’s also a short commentary about the calligraphic rendition of each card separately.
Cards and booklet, available in an English or Dutch edition, are presented in a stylish gift box, with three Litterae bookmarks on top of it.
