Endangered Alphabets

The goal of the Endangered Alphabets Project is to preserve most of the world’s vanishing writing systems by carving them in boards of beautiful Vermont curly Maple. With an introduction by David Crystal, author of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language, the book aims to raise questions about writing itself: how it develops, what it expresses beyond straightforward meaning and how it is being affected by all the rapid changes in technology. It was published in 2010 with layout and design by CCPI students Lindsay Webster and Emily Regis. Click here to buy the book.
