If something is important, we write it down. Yet 85% of the world’s writing systems are on the verge of vanishing — not granted official status, not taught in schools, discouraged and dismissed.
When a culture is forced to abandon its traditional script, everything it has written for hundreds of years — sacred texts, poems, personal correspondence, legal documents, the collective experience, wisdom and identity of a people — is lost.
This Atlas is about those writing systems, and the people who are trying to save them.
