Antonio Basoli’s Alfabeto Pittorico

Leave a comment

Huge thank you to my friend, Skeen, who shared these images with me. There are other sites out there with them, but I wanted to share for a bit too. I love art, writing, and architecture. This pulls them all in together. Very cool!

In Bologna, Italy in 1839, decorative artist Antonio Basoli published a fantastic set of lithographs for his book, Alfabeto Pittorico (Pictorial Alphabet, or a collection of pictorial thoughts composed of objects beginning with the individual letters of the alphabet). His elaborate architectural drawings of twenty-four letters of the alphabet and one ampersand (sorry J & W), became later known as Basoli’s Alphabet.

If you look closely at the & sign, after the Z, you will see all of the letters of the Antonio Basoli’s Alfabeto Pittorico listed in the curves of the &. They were never included in the Antonio Basoli Alphabet city.
The original Latin alphabet was:
A B C D E F Z H I K L M N O P Q R S T V X

Basolis-Alphabet-1

Basolis-Alphabet-2

Basolis-Alphabet-3

I used to have lots of fun making wallpaper’s, banner’s, lj icons, animated icons, and the like. I even answered the 100 LJ Icon challenge. I have quite a few Enterprise icons, and then some funny icons too.
So be prepared over the next few weeks, I’ll start posting them again.
if you want to use any please give credit to GroovyTrekGoddess, thank you!!
All colors I post are Mine. Meaning, I did them, the colors. My character, Briana Storm is (C). Please do not borrow/steal.

I used to do these by requests, if someone would like to submit a request via a comment. I’ll see what I can.

Animated Stamp:

Photo LJ icon

Mini Banner

simple animation

For those Trip fanfic writers

Did a color, and then made it part of a wallpaper for my sister!

A color of my character, Briana. Animated!!

And I’ve made custom calendars. This is a sample using my IMVU avatar of Briana, during my and my sister’s birthday month. 😀

I think this weekend, I’m going to be in the mood, color, or do a wallpaper, or something in Photoshop. I miss this type of creativity too! 😀

more LJ Icons soon. They can be used for other sites, etc. Just if someone asks who, how to get one; please link/credit to me. Here for a link is good. Ppl can leave requests in the comments. And let me know how to contact you?

Hope ya’ll enjoy!

WooHOOOO!

I’m sooo happy! I got my main computer up and running, and now I’m painting an art piece, that my co-writer sent me of our characters! It’s sooo beautiful. I can’t wait to see it, when I’m done! lol
hopefully, I make it look as good, as I can see it my mind’s eye. 🙂
