Description
This stunning new Wall Card format allows classic motifs to lend old-fashioned charm to any modern-day home. Engravings that originally graced the pages of Webster's dictionaries in the nineteenth century are drawn from the book "Pictorial Webster's" by Johnny Carrera and reproduced here on sumptuously heavy cardstock with bold typographic letters. This title includes 26 cards, one for each letter of the alphabet, suitable for framing or propping up willy-nilly.
