W. R. Tymms
Designed by W and G Audsley and chromolithographed by W R Tymms
13¾ x 10½ inches

A fantastically elaborate initial letter which recreates the polychromatic splendour of medieval illumination. Tymms’s mastery over the medium of chromolithography is strongly asserted, providing a dazzling replication of the Audsleys’ original design.
