Charles Joseph Hullmandel, an influential 19th century lithographic artist, created The Landscape Alphabet, a collection of 26 landscape scenes, using the shapes of letters to form idyllic scenery. Bound as a single volume, the work belongs to The British Museum and is available online through the institutions digitized online collection, including thumbnails of all 26 letters.
The museum describes of Letter A as “Composed of three figures around a fire at the edge of a slope to small pond, forming the lower part of the letter; outline by trees.”
Hullmandel printed thousands of lithographs in the nineteenth century and authored a handbook on the process in 1824.
