This landscape alphabet is an easy way to teach somebody the alphabet and make sure they remember it, down to the letter. This alphabet is so beautiful that it actually sits in a museum.

While these illustrations could have been beautiful pieces of 19th century art on their own, having them shaped like the alphabet makes them more dynamic. Having the C literally be the sea with a lighthouse pointing out towards the center is an inventive way to play on words. Not all the letters play on words in this same way, but they all look good regardless.

The landscape alphabet was created by Charles Joseph Hullmandel, and reminds us that beauty can take on any form.
