Bornomala: Bangla Alphabet Book Collection

Sabyasachi Hazra (ed.)
Kobi Prokashoni, 2014
I came across this book when I went to an exhibition titled "Primer to Press" by Sabyasachi Hazra. The book was launched there, the collection edited by Hazra himself. It assembles eight selected primers of Bangla language dating from 1849 to 1948. The book is a rich collection of specimens, and, as a whole, a well -researched testament to the evolution of Bangla letters over the years. It boasts an impressive analysis of the practice of printing and publishing used in Bangla primers and is great to have in collection for those interested in the linguistic history of Bangla lettering.
