A is van Os (A is for Ox)
Nominated for European Design Awards 2019
Category Self-Initiated Projects
Anyone who can read knows the 26 letters of the alphabet. But where do these letters come from? How long do they exist? And who designed them?
Autobahn and Bette Westera take you back to the time of our distant ancestors, who made a drawing if they wanted to ‘write’ something. Slowly but surely their drawings changed into the first letters. If you look closely you can recognize our current alphabet.
And guess what? A is not for Apple at all, but for Ox! After reading this book you will understand how this came to be. You will also understand why, whenever we send each other emoji’s, we actually do the same as our distant ancestors over 5000 years ago.
