Evolution-of-the-Alphabet-Chart

When it comes to decorating the walls your space, there are so many great art and print shops out there that it can be hard to find exactly what you want. If you’re anything like us, you want pieces that interesting, unique, thought-provoking and guaranteed to last a good, long while before you get sick of them. Enter Matt Baker and his shop Useful Charts, an entire collection of beautifully rendered and incredibly expansive charts filled with all the information you should have learned in history class. The current piece we’re geeking out about is “Evolution of the Alphabet,” a chart that chronicles exactly what the name implies from the Proto-Sinaitic to the Modern Latin Script you’re reading this in. It’s filled with interesting tidbits (y evolving into v and then u, v and w, for instance) and printed in a rainbow gradient on a black background that makes it incredibly easy to follow. You can download a Creative Commons licensed version from the Useful Charts Blog, or purchase one a 975 limited edition 18×24 cardstock prints finished in satin from the link below.
