Geofiction: design an alphabet

You need:

  1. drawing paper A4 size
  2. colour pencils

Another task that belongs to geofiction (Design your own country - see other posts in the category geofiction), is the design of an alphabet. This can be an alphabet in which our characters are replaced by a letter that are one or two places further in the alphabet, but it can also be a drawn alphabet. In the artwork above every letter is replaced by a little drawing of something that starts with that letter. Of course this example is in Dutch: n = neus/nose, m = maan/moon. The students who designed this alphabet, evenmade seperate characters for our Dutch double vowels!
