Today, February 22, 2014–Peanut’s 6th birthday–is the official publication of Alpha, Beta,…: A Pictorial Guide to the Attic Greek Alphabet. Five years in the making, the book is complete at last. Look forward to a future post containing an interview with the author and information on how to order a copy for your personal or civic library.

Early reviewers are uniformly enthusiastic (all photos of ancient authors in the public domain; all quotes loosely translated):

“Makes me think lyrical thoughts & break out in Adonic lines–and I’m not even from Attica!”      Sappho

 

 

 

 

Sophocles

 

“It’s a real tragedy that it wasn’t available until now. JJM Braulick, take a bow!”
