On the Graphic Language of the Handwritten Greek Ephemeris

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The present chapter constitutes an attempt to introduce aspects of the little known and largely neglected modern Greek scribal history to a wider audience discussing the physical properties and the typographic features of the handwritten ephemeris. Moreover, it suggests that visual graphic language constitutes an integral part of that history and it should be studied alongside and in combination with already established research objectives.
