Art Nouveau Alphabet, 1903, Giclee Print
Art Nouveau Alphabet, 1903, Giclee Print

A “letter” is an element or symbol of a writing system, such as an alphabet, that represents the vowel (a, e, i, o, u) and consonant sounds in a spoken language.

New Greek, Poster

The word alphabet evolved from alpha and beta, the first two letters in the Greek alphabet. Most alphabets in use today are linear (made up of lines); exceptions are Braille for the blind, manual alphabets where fingers and/or hand positions represent letters as in sign languages for communications with the deaf; Morse code as a digital modulation, and cuneiform beginning as a system of pictures (pictographs) that simplified and abstracted over time.

The English language uses the Latin alphabet consisting of 26 letters; the Cyrillic alphabet is used in Slavic languages like Russian; Arabic and Hebrew scripts are examples of abjads with symbols for consonants and most vowels unexpressed.

A number symbol, or numeral, is used to describe a mathematical concept of quantity and order. Numbers are used to describe a count, measurements, labels, and codes. In arithmetic operations numbers are added, subtracted, multiplied and divided.


• “I have often admired the mystical way of Pythagoras, and the secret Magic of numbers.” ~ Sir Thomas Browne
• “By phonemic trans-formation into visual terms, the alphabet became a universal, abstract, static container of meaningless sounds.” ~ Marshall McLuhan
• “Numbers constitute the only universal language.” ~ Nathanael West

Sign Language Giclee Print
Sign Language Alphabet, 1827, Giclee Print

Sign language was developed by Abbe Charles-Michel de l'Épée, who, in the philantropic spirit of the 18th century, believed that deaf people were capable of language, and dedicated himself to developing a manual signing langauge so they could receive the sacraments, thus avoid going to hell. He has become known as the “Father of the Deaf.”

Cherokee Alphabet, from Pendelton's 'Lithography', 1835, Giclee Print

There are 85/6 characters in the Cherokee Alphabet devised by the Cherokee silversmith Sequoyah (c. 1775-1843) who saw the advantages of the white peoples “talking leaves” and wanted the Cherokee to have the same ability to communicate. While some symbols in the Cherokee Alphabet resemble Latin alphabet letters the sounds are much different; the characters represent syllables. Sequoyah's writing system was made official by the Cherokee Nation in 1825.

A to Zen
Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits / Believe in yourself / Consider things from every angle / Don't give up and don't give in / Everything you're looking for lies behind the mask you wear / Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches / Give more than you planned to / Hang on to your dreams / If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door / Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it / Keep trying no matter how hard it seems / Love yourself / Make it happen / Never lie, steal or cheat / Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values / Practice makes perfect / Quality not quantity in anything you do / Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer / Stop procrastinating / Take control of your own destiny / Understand yourself in order to better understand others / Visualise it / When you lose, don't lose the lesson / Xcellence in all your efforts / You are unique, nothing can replace you / Zero in on your target and go for it
