Foreign-Language Alphabets (Dover Pictorial Archives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Graphic artists in need of hard-to-find foreign-language alphabets will find what they're looking for in this latest collection from noted typographer Dan X. Solo. Included in the immensely practical and attractively printed volume (one of the largest archives of its kind available) are 100 alphabets in 43 different languages, from Arabic to Welsh.

Thirty-three alphabets are in accented Latin script, while 10 are in non-Latin scripts. The former include Albanian, Basque, Catalan, Dutch, Esperanto, French, Frisian, German, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Croatian, Spanish, Tagalog, Turkish, Vietnamese, and more. Among the non-Latin alphabets are Arabic, Celtic, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Irish Traditional, Japanese, and Korean. Most alphabets feature upper- and lower-case letters; many also include numerals and punctuation marks.

A valuable resource for artists and illustrators, these inexpensive, royalty-free fonts are ideal for use in display ads, on posters, signs, menus—almost any graphic or printed communications.
