Architectural Alphabet, Antonio Basoli
Though perhaps not as clever and imaginative as the Landscape alphabet by L.E.M. Jones — that I recently highlighted here on Lines and Colors — this architectural alphabet by Italian artist Antonio Basoli is nonetheless well done and amusing.

Basoli published his Pictorial Alphabet, or, a collection of pictorial thoughts composed of objects beginning with the individual letters of the alphabet in 1839.

The full alphabet can be seen on LiveInternet.ru (text in Russian). There are articles on Giornale Nuovo and Letterology.
