What Jesus wrote

No one knows for certain what languages Jesus wrote and spoke.

Aramaic yes but maybe Hebrew and Greek as well?

This image is edited from an inscription with the name Yeshua in Aramaic.

Here's an example of the related Syraic script used in a mosaic.

Here's S-L-M in Hebrew Arabic and Aramiac in modern calligraphy.

Note the related forms !

Finally some more examples of Aramaic to finish off !

Paul Felton's TEN (Anti) Commandments

It is possible to write a funny critique of typography!

Have you seen this book by Paul Felton


Yes this is the same book not 2.

One side has the "Ten commandments of Typography" for Students and Designers but the other side has Felton  being joyously irreverent about guidelines for typography.

This is a must read! Really! Do make an effort to borrow or buy it!

100 OZ %

I've created a new version of my 100 % OZ design 

Here's a direct link to RED Bubble for you to use or share with friends

100 % OZ by Julie Vaux

You can get a variety of different colors for backgrounds and there's a sticker too.

Got an "ethnic" friend who's born and proud of being  Aussie where ever their parents or grandparents came from?

Maybe you havea "koori"  friend or workmate?

Give them as a sticker or tee  so they can visually rebuke a certain kind of bigot!
