A limited-run book of letterforms found at St. George's church in Norwich, forming the basis of a guide to the history of the building and its parish.

The letters were found on walls, gravestones and crypt slabs in and around the church building. Each predates standardised typefaces, and as such is entirely unique to the stonemason who carved it. 26 letters of the alphabet are accompanied by short pieces of factual, narrative or anecdotal writing from a member of the congregation.

The book is available to buy from the church itself, and all profits go to the preservation and upkeep of the building. It has also won three Roses Creative Awards, including the 2012 Chairman's award.
