A 2006 sculpture by Lloyd G. Schermer entitled Gutenberg's Puzzle features many letters in different fonts as they might have been used on a printing press. It also features a small metallic plate which quotes the 1st Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
