4.0 out of 5 stars Good history of the alphabet, 29 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Alphabetic Labyrinth: The Letters in History and Imagination (Paperback)
This is probably Drucker's most acessable book, as she she usually concentrates on very specialist areas. Here, everyone can enjoy what she has to say on the alphabet. She has a balance between informal and formal language, which enables you to judge the level of depth you are going into. It has large areas which are very easy to understand, and it is these which make the book. Anyone can join in and learn the basics. For the more obsessed reader, there's another level (which may seem a little overwhelming to those unfamilier with the topic). So there's something for everyone, all in the same book. If you find that you don't want to go on, you can leave it there, and it sits on its own, but the posibilirty for delving deeper is there. Chapters include: The Alphabet in Context, Origins & Historians, the Kabblah, the Alphabet in the 19th Century. It gives a full history, including full details on specific genres. Lots of illustrations/diagrams/photos, so you won't be sitting wandering what she is talking about.
