Font Series IV: Palais grand ducal, Luxembourg
The Ducal Palace in Luxembourg is probably not the grandest of palaces, but it certainly reaches the standard of Noordeinde Palace though without the Coldstream Guards it doesn’t quite match up to Buckingham Palace. However, what the Ducal Palace does have, and if you look closely, you might spot it, is an amazing font inscribed under a balcony.
Perhaps you need a closer look?
So elegant! So unusual! So carved in stone! I don’t really understand the different letter heights, there is no order discernible to me, but I thought it beautiful, and so was extremely happy when my attention was drawn to it by the ever-observant CIA.
Evidently this is not even the most beautiful balcony in Europe (but to me, it came close second).
