Please send me a sample of the Art Deco alphabet for lettering on my new storefront in Culpeper Virginia. I have an art supply store and I would like to restore it to the Art Deco style. The name of the store is Artistic License. Can you help?

You can find Art Deco alphabets in several low-cost books. Your local bookstore probably has at least one of these; I've provide links to amazon.com in case you want to browse or purchase online.
I have these two Dover books in my collection. Dover Publications specializes in copyright-free art and has many other Art Deco design books.
