ABOUT







Shavian

"The Shavian alphabet is named after George Bernard Shaw and was devised by Kingsley Read. Shaw saw use of the Latin alphabet for writing English as a great waste of time, energy and paper, so in his will he stipulated that a competition should be held to create a new writing system for English and made provision for a prize of 500. The competition took place in 1958 and Kingsley Read's system was chosen as the winner out of the 467 entries. " The page by Simon Ager has links to Shavian fonts.
