The Alphabetic Labyrinth : Letters in History and Imagination Paperback
The letters of the alphabet have been the source of some speculation since their invention almost 4000 years ago.
Through research this text examines the many ways in which the letters of the alphabet have been used in political, spiritual and religious systems over two millennia.
The book also presents the more general history of lettering, printing and calligraphy, as well as using colour illustrations to support the text.
