"At the beginning of 2011 along with the poet Michael King of Jerusalem, I drew and published the book" Jerusalem ABC "(thanks to Misha for the great idea!)
While working on a book, in Jerusalem, I thought about the further development of this idea. I wanted to do something like a series of guides to the author's favorite cities and countries.
And before you "Tbilisi Alphabet" while working on that I think I almost learned the Georgian letters.
