Why do we cut letters in stone? To make them last. Why do we want to make them last?
This book explores this question, and the value and significance of lettercutting. For letters to be cut in stone there has to be a vital spark: the meeting of the commissioner and the lettercutter. The authors represent these two roles: Lida as a lettercutter, running the Cardozo Kindersley Workshop, and Emma who commissioned a sundial.
