Pictographic Art

Year: 1974
'Pictogrammes de la Genèse.
The Genesis of the Old Testament 1.27-1.31, narrated in a language-script made with pictograms (symbols that represent the meaning of a word). Following strict rules this allows anyone, no matter in what language, to understand the meaning of the text. Friedman worked to arrange the pictograms in such a way that the image of the page is pleasing to the eye. Friedman used this pictographic method in the privacy of his own for communication wit his family.
