Letters are truly finer things. In the English language, 26 letters, along with a number of supporting characters, make up an innumerable amount of meanings, expressions, and statements when combined in unique ways. Letters are the beautiful intersection of conveying meaning of spoken language silently. Individual things become something completely different. It is through this power that the alphabet holds a special place in the human heart.
Alphabet stones are a tradition in stone carving, displaying a certain font in a carver’s repertoire from beginning to end. This stone is no different, highlighting Trajan-style serifed capitals in slate, originally from Maine and completed in early 2022.
