This thing is monolithic. A 6.5 inch, beautiful R carved out of a lovely piece of end grain wood. The letterform has few frills, but I just love the little kick out on the leg. It’s a very nice curve; not too fancy, but just enough to really set it off. The face on this block is one of the most lovely I’ve seen. The rings from the grain fall right in the middle of the letter and fan out. There’s a pretty bad wound on the top left.
