The perfect Valentine’s Day gift for lovers of writing, men and women of letters: a matching pair of hand-carved monograms, each roughly 9″x9″, in curly maple, perfect for the wall or mantelpiece.
Given that the purpose of the Endangered Alphabets Project is to raise awareness of the importance of preserving minority cultures, my preference (and that of many others) is to help you find a script you’ll like that will leave all your friends doing a double-take and asking you to tell the story behind it. And of course I’ll send you the necessary information to help you do just that.
Alternatively, I’ll be glad to carve in English letters or, to make them even more personal and unusual, in an ancestral family script. I’ve even been asked to do Elvish.
Cost: $195 for the pair plus shipping.
