The Nyctograph Edition

Do you recognise the odd looking square lettering shown in the book cover above? I'd... hm... guess not. It's on the cover of an edition of "Alice" written in the night time language Lewis Carroll devised, so he could jot down notes at night without having to get out of bed and light a candle. Carroll used his alphabet with a special device which he called a nyctograph. You could take it into bed with you and write under your warm bedclothes!

Alan Tannenbaum has written a foreword to this edition, and the book is available on Amazon. If you want to click here you can find some more information. It all sounds very logical!
