The litany is from the science-fiction classic, Dune by author, Frank Herbert. I haven't read any of the Dune books, but a thorough search of the Internet gave me the inspiration I needed. The stylized hawk's head is a common icon in Dune memorabilia.
The font is from one of my favorite stitching tools, 120 Alphabets by Carol Emmer.
This book has given me plenty of inspiration and ideas. This is just one of many wonderful alphabet books at the Leisure Arts website. One or two or three should give you all the lettering ideas you could possibly want.
