Alphabets – A Journey Through Written Communication|
The modern-day Latin alphabet sits among the other 293 writing systems currently used in our world today. Each one is a foundation block that conveys our thoughts, ideas and knowledge to anyone who takes the time and effort to inscribe them for the next generation. In this article, we will take you on a journey through the evolutions we have undergone in how we communicate in the written format, from leaving scrawled symbols on old cave walls, to receiving work emails that we sometimes wish would end up in our spam folders.
