SD1. Yves Leterme: Litterae

Small amount of cosmetic damage to the box.. No damge to actual book.

Yves Leterme: Litterae is a unique boxed collection of 24 calligraphic works, finely printed on individual sheets of cover stock, approximately 8-1/4" x 5-7/8". The works are all Latin quotations, each masterfully rendered by Yves in a calligraphically fitting style. The reverse side of each sheet contains the Latin text again along with an English and Dutch translation. The accompanying 36-page book (in English) provides background for the quotes and the calligraphy: Yves is a classical scholar as well as a skilled scribe. The Roman authors, their work, and the chosen quotations are discussed, and Yves provides an account of the creation for each of the 24 calligraphic compositions. Both the works and the small book are full-color and are presented in a stylish gift box.
