Exhibition info

The Alphabet Museum presents a collection of work, much of it newly commissioned, that reaches back to the ancient beginnings of the alphabet and illustrates the connections between symbols and sounds, the roundabout routes from hieroglyphs to the letters we use today and the myriad ways in which skilled letter carvers work with and manipulate the ’other’ tools of their trade – the letters of the alphabet. The exhibition includes carvings, drawings, glass and woodwork, systems of codes, Greek, Roman and Hebrew alphabets and axe work.
