Evertype: The Nyctographic Alice

Postby Evertype » Wed Jan 04, 2012 10:35 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of an edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", printed in the Nyctographic Alphabet.

From the back cover:

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a.k.a Lewis Carroll, invented a special writing instrument he called “the Nyctograph” on 24 September 1891, in frustration at the process of “getting out of bed at 2 a.m. in a winter night, lighting a candle, and recording some happy thought which would probably be otherwise forgotten”. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in the author's unique night-time alphabet. A page with links to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk is available at http://www.evertype.com/books/alice-nyctograph.html . Bookstores can order copies at a discount from the publisher.

Cor, how interesting!

Makes me wonder, have you ever published a braille edition, Mr Evertype? Or would that be too difficult, technically?

I have not published a Braille, and it would require a completely different manufacturing process than the one which I use.

But I hope you enjoy The Nyctographic Alice! :-)
