A flood of primarily lithographic lettering artists' model books came on the market beginning in the 1830s. The present booklet gives the first overview of what appeared in the Netherlands in this genre. It emphasizes model books for drawns lettering rather than writing. Publications of this sort were important not only for the lithographers, but also for sign painters, letter cutters and others who were active professionally with lettering.
