In The Architectural Treatise of Sebastiano Serlio, Books I - V, Pieter Coecke van Aelst (1502–1550) discusses the formulation of letters - a topic dear to Renaissance artists - and presents an example of an alphabet that he designed. This unique tote displays this handsome alphabet, taken from Book IV in the Museum’s collection, which Coecke published in Antwerp in 1545.

Cotton. 14 1/2'' x 16 1/2''.
