As we observe writing systems globally, what common attributes are revealed? What stages have led us from early written forms to contemporary writing? Which key inventions have changed the course of writing? How many types of writing systems can we identify?

During this lecture, we will not only answer these questions, but also identify characteristics of writing you may have never thought about before.

This and all Letterform Lectures are a public aspect of the Type West postgraduate certificate program. Register to attend remotely.
