So Honza, I hope I have answered your questions by posting photos and explaining the printing process - if you have missed some of these messages entitled “SignWriter Newspaper", look in the SignWriting List Archives for November 2021.

Thank you for presenting SignWriting history to your students in the Czech Republic.

Attached is one last photo of a wonderful cartoon series printed in the later issues of the SignWriter Newspaper. The cartoons were drawn by the famous sign language artist Frank Allen Paul, and the ASL SignWriting in the cartoons was written by Deaf journalist Dennis Schemenauer. The two worked together on this project and pioneered the concept of SignWriting in cartoons. Later in history, other writers have done wonderful cartoons with SignWriting… Every time I see a cartoon using SignWriting in our present time, I think of Frank and Dennis.

Please see attached…
