Alphabets: A Miscellany of Letters is a lavish colourful collection, from A to Z, of a multitude of examples of the Western alphabet in use.

Alphabets explores the language of letters that we see around us everyday, touching on the alphabet’s origins in hieroglyphs through to its development as a significant part of our history and visual vocabulary.

Alphabets includes a comprehensive introduction on the origins of the written word and features illustrations, found objects, graphic design, art, conceptual typography, graffiti and much more.

Highly illustrated, fascinating and delightfully entertaining, Alphabets: A Miscellany of Letters is a beautiful compendium of a subject that is as significant in contemporary design today as it has ever been.
