A Matched Set

This lovely wood engraving, Alphabet and Feathers, 2010 is by Angie Lewin and commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum Shop.
:: Via: Ancient Industries.

I'm like a bull in a china shop. I just bumped into another Alphabet mug which Angie Lewin used as a model for her lovely print. It was part of a set which was originally designed by Eric Ravilious in 1937 for Wedgwood. Evidently this mug was recently and quietly re-issued by Wedgwood and then quickly withdrawn. You can view more of Eric Ravilious amazing artwork here.
