Read full description of the books:



"African alphabets have rich cultural and artistic histories. Many continue to be used today. Their story is little known, however, due largely to their suppression by colonial powers. This book sets the record straight." Afrikan Alphabets describes a 20-year journey to collect information on the highly graphical and inspiring symbols that go to make up the over 20 alphabets featured in this book. Writing systems (pictographs, mnemonic devices, syllabaries and alphabets) across the African continent and the Diaspora are displayed and described. This is an extensively illustrated and informative visual journey through an aspect of African culture and art.
