One and Everything

One and Everything

One and Every­thing cel­e­brates the pow­er of sto­ries and writ­ten lan­guages — and the imper­a­tive to pre­serve them.

Once there were many sto­ries in the world. There were sto­ries with sun­sets and won­der­ful tales filled with fairies and dinosaurs. But one day, a sto­ry decid­ed that it was the best, the most impor­tant sto­ry ever. It called itself the One and start­ed to con­sume every oth­er sto­ry it came across. The One ate sto­ries made of seas and oth­ers full of dogs. Soon it seemed that the One was all there was … or was it? 

Inspired by the Endan­gered Alpha­bets project, aimed at pre­serv­ing cul­tures by shar­ing their unique scripts, Sam Win­ston uses writ­ing sys­tems such as cuneiform and Tibetan, Egypt­ian hiero­glyphs and ogham to illus­trate this book in his sig­na­ture typog­ra­phy-based style, using sym­bols and let­ters that have relayed the world’s sto­ries over the centuries.
