A is for Ox by Lyn Davies

A Short History of the Alphabet. Have you ever wondered why the letters are shaped the way they are? Why each particular shape came to represent its specific sound? Why certain letters have alternative shapes; and why we use two alphabets – capitals and small letters? Searching for the answers to questions like these will lead to encounters with Egyptian slaves, freebooting Phoenicians, Greek colonists, Roman sign writers, Carolingian intellectuals, and excitable Renaissance bibliophiles.
