THE LETTERS IN HISTORY  
Nov. 10, 2017
Author:  Øyvin Rannem
Category:  International rights: Non-fiction
Description:  In THE LETTERS IN HISTORY typographer Øyvin Rannem teaches us the West European writing-and letter culture, which extends for more than 2000 years, from antiquity to fascism.
Why do letters look like they do? What is their origin? And why was it the Latin letters that won and not the Greek?
In the background there's politics and power struggle, Rome against Constantinople, east against west – north against south, Christianity against paganism.
For the first time the development and history of letters is put into a historical context – against the development of society and culture in Europe.
A truly remarkable book – which inspires and teaches you everything you didn't think you needed to know about letters.
