This beautiful ornamental Victorian alphabet (initial script) was designed for engraving, fancy needlework, etc. Most of our modern-day alphabet is included on the two pages except the letters “X” and “I” or “J” Perhaps the letter included, whether it is intended to be an “I” or “J”, is interchangeable. I scanned the original pages from Hill’s Manual of Social and Business Forms, by Thos. E. Hill, 1886.

Pat, I love beautiful handwriting as well. I hope writing will never completely be replaced by our technological gadgets.
Mary, that is an excellent idea!
Linda, I’m happy to know that you like it. It’ll be fun to see what you come up with if you use this in your designs.
Kimberly, I’m delighted to know you love everything!
