I commissioned calligrapers from all over the world to create alphabets and proverbs for this title, published by Lonely Planet.

From Arabic and Japanese to Hebrew, Javanese and Cherokee, The Art of Language explores 26 unique scripts and alphabets, from its history and roots to how to use the script with calligraphy tutorials.
