Usage

This alphabet was created for hand carving. It was typically used when carving raised lettering, as carving raised roman or other detailed lettering styles is extremely difficult – especially in granite and even further difficult without the help of harder modern carving tools.

History

This version of a square raised or block style commercial gothic is based on the Vermont Marble Companies booklet Lettering In Marble, printed in 1923. It has some variation and is slightly thinner than the next version of the to be standardized in the industry, Spacerite’s Splayed Corner Gothic, which was a metal letter set which began production only 5 years after the printing of the Vermont Marble Company booklet and will in most cases more closely match square raised lettering carved by hand from around that time period where the Spacerite letters were not used.

Characters

The alphabet was printed with no punctuation, and as such, all punctuation has been created by by the MLC.
