A complete figurative alphabet was published by one Peter Flotner (ca.1485-1546) in 1534. In Flotnerâ’s alphabet, naked or nearly-naked figures are posed singly or disposed in pairs to form the various letters. Unlike de Grassiâ’s alphabet, we find only human figures here, no other animals.

And unlike Toryâ’s illustrations, these letters seem an end in themselves, rather than the means of demonstrating a design strategy. Flotnerâ’s alphabet was imitated by other engravers. The letters G and N are reproduced from an alphabet published by one Martin Weygel in Bavaria in 1560.

Peter Flötner, c.1485-1546, German medalist and artisan, possibly Swiss by birth. He was active in decorative sculpture, wood carving, and other crafts, making medals and plaques and furnishing designs of classical motifs for silversmiths. He was in Nuremberg by 1522 and did most of his work there, although he made two trips to Italy. Flötner is now regarded as a pioneer of the German Renaissance. His Kunstbuch was published in 1549. In the Metropolitan Museum are five of his bronze
plaques illustrating biblical episodes.
