A custom-carved and painted sign or other wood product--such as a musical instrument case or desktop, for example--depicting one of the Endangered Alphabets. (Note: some texts are easier to get than others. I may or may not be able to create exactly what the backer wishes, and the final product will have to be the result of discussions between the backer and myself.) Send me the item and I'll do the carving/monogramming. Extra shipping charges will apply to overseas backers, depending on the specific item commissioned.Estimated delivery:
