New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I thought to share an interesting graph that I recently stumbled across:
It's from page 195 of "The shaping of our alphabet" by Frank Denman (Knopf, 1955). The chapter home to the graph (#12, "Where do we go from here?") is actually a riveting read itself, and contains a completely unexpected and very eloquent defense of... alphabet reform! I tell you, the things one finds by mistake.
Anyway, rather than offer my interpretations of the graph,
I'd like to stay quiet and hear of the things you see in it.
