Interesting Gregg fact

I was reading Alice in Wonderland in Shorthand the other day (by the way a must-read either in shorthand or not) and I had the pages upside down and tried to start reading it and I realised that even though it was upside down there were no illegal or unkosher looking strokes. The outlines still formed words, of course totally illegible ones.

Well I just though this was interesting to note, comments?

    Where did you find your copy? I've read the beginning of a PDF version I found online, scanned by Microsoft from a copy at University of California, but the quality is grainy which makes it hard to read.

    I am not sure if this forum is too familiar with this directory, in fact someone from this forum recommended me to here. There are a lot of good shorthand resources there, speed studies, gregg writers, tips and tricks and all kinds of stuff. It also has a good version of Alice in Wonderland.

    Its a shame that there's not many freely available shorthand literature books available. After I finish, I won't have anything interesting to read except a couple of boring fables, and a whole lot of business material.

  3. Michael L., what a nice link!  I am looking at the poem at the beginning of Alice in Wonderland right now.  It's not hugely different from DJS Gregg; I'm pleased to say I'm at least getting the gist of it.   When I was a little girl, I remember I read both Alice books at least 2 x apiece.
