ABOUT







Shaw Alphabet Links

Bob Richmond lists web sites with Shavian fonts (Shaw alphabet fonts). His intro explains why the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw (d. 1950) wanted to create a new alphabet for English and how his trustees held a design contest, which resulted in the adoption of a design by Kingsley Read, a 72-year-old typographer.
