In his will, George Bernard Shaw left instructions (and some funds) for the development of a new regular alphabet for the English language. A design by Ronald Kingsley Read was chosen. In 1962, Shaw’s play "Androcles and the Lion" was printed in what became known as the Shaw Alphabet, or Shavian. This edition of "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson.
