Times OLD Roman

Ancient script brings a whole new level to the term hand lettering. These letters are literally chiseled out of marble and still around today. Talk about longevity of work.

Traveling around Rome I took pictures of as many samples of ancient text I could find. Here are a few from the coliseum, forum, museums, and off the streets.

These are a few of the old Christian symbols and letters. Note the addition of pictures with the letters something we did not find with the Roman texts.

“The spoken word is ephemeral. The written word, eternal. A symphony, timeless.”
A.E. Samaan
