SignWriting List
March 28, 2001

Hello Patsy and Everyone -

Thank you for informing me about the book "Grafic Symbols in
Supporting Communication". I did not know about this publication! And
thanks to Liesbet for including SignWriting examples....maybe in time
I can get a copy of the book...

I do know Liesbet Pyffers a little. She studied with me briefly in
Copenhagen, Denmark, in April, 1990, at a five-day SignWriting
seminar we held there. And there were several others from the
Netherlands who attended that workshop, including two Deaf people,
Hank Buter and Jan Backer. Both Hank and Jan were strong SignWriting
users at the time. See the attached photo ;-)
