Comic Alphabets : Their Origin, Development, Nature Paperback / softback
Part of the Routledge Revivals: The Selected Works of Eric Partridge series
Paperback / softback
First published in 1961, this book explores the form of the comic alphabet.
Whether through poems, prose or phonetics, the alphabet has become a way in which mankind has taken pleasure in playing with words and phrases.
Indeed, approaches can vary significantly from the almost moronically humorous to the ingenious and genuinely witty and this book looks at the reasons how and why the comic alphabet came to possess the arguably sophisticated form in which people know it today.
