Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Ever since I began the Endangered Alphabets Project (see
http://www.endangeredalphabets.com) two years ago, it was my dream to take
it on a World Tour<that is, to display the exhibition in every country it
represents, to give prominence to the endangered script and raise discussion
about the importance of linguistic and cultural preservation.
As things stand, the countries I¹d visit would be Indonesia, Canada, the
United States, Vietnam, China, Liberia, Iraq, Israel, Mongolia, Guinea, Cote
d¹Ivoire, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Morocco. Maybe one or two others.

ect/. For every donation you get some kind of Alphabets-related reward as a
* If you know of a gallery, college, university, library or other
institution in any of those countries that might want to host the Alphabets,
please let me know by email.
* If you know of any other endangered scripts in any other countries that
you think I should visit, by all means make that suggestion.
* If you know of funding agencies that might support my project, please let
me know!
* And if you happen to own an airline, please send me a ticket!

 Best wishes, and good luck with your valuable work.
P.S. I¹m very sorry if you get this message through another listserv as
