Georgian alphabet has no limitations
Georgian scripts are among the 14 existing alphabets in the world. Georgian scripts include three variations: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri and Mkhedruli. Each of the variation used to have different purposes and applications throughout the years. All three variations differ in appearance. Currently, the official alphabet of the country is Mkhedruali.

Georgian artists have created various interpretations related to the letters of the Georgian alphabet. Recently, as Georgia is a Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book fair, Georgian artists created a concept
“Georgia Made by Characters”. The project aims to represent Georgia through Georgian characters. Each decorated character tells a story about a certain event or person significant to the history and culture of Georgia.

"tvali" - an eye

Much earlier than the project, a young Georgian graphic designer Beka Beridze created very interesting illustrations. He chose some words and decorated characters within the words. Illustrated characters reveal the meaning of the world.

"tuchi" - lips

Beka not only turn the characters into illustrations but also made them speak. There is no need for translations of the words into different languages as their meanings are revealed through illustrations made from the characters.

"manqana" - a car

Recently, Frankfurt U-Bahn has been decorated with the posters of Georgian alphabet. The posters are the reminder of the fact that Georgia is the honorary country of Frankfurt Book Fair 2018.

The beauty and uniqueness of the Georgian alphabet are recognized all over the world. Georgian scripts are among the only 14 existing scripts worldwide. Georgian scripts include three writing systems: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri and Mkhedruli. The three systems show three levels of development of the Georgian alphabet. It is worth to admit that today all of them are still in use. The third system – Mkhedruli or designated for wider society is used as a literary language. The first two are used in church services – all of the books used in church and liturgy are written with the Nuskhuri and Asomtavruli script. Although the systems differ in appearance, all three are written in the lower case (in other words no capital letters are used).

"nakini" - ice-cream

Beka was inspired by the works of a Korean graphic designer Ji Lee. Ji Lee illustrates Latin characters to create English words. He gained popularity very quickly and a lot of companies expressed interests in his work. The young designer is going to publish his collection and to diversify his project.
