Egyptian Hieroglyph

Hieratic

Phoenician

Early Greek

Historians tell us that our current M started out as the Egyptian hieroglyph for “owl.” Over thousands of years, this simple line drawing was further distilled into the hieratic symbol for the ‘em’ sound. Eventually, the great-grandparent of our M looked a bit like a handwritten ‘m’ balanced on the tip of one stroke.The Phoenicians called the letter mem. It’s easy to see that the Phoenician mem is based on the Egyptian hieratic symbol, and that it’s the forerunner of the thirteenth letter of our alphabet. The mem looked much like our two-bumped lowercase ‘m’ with an added tail at the end. The Greek mu evolved from the Phoenician mem. The Greeks further simplified the letter and, in the process, converted the soft, round shapes into angular strokes. The Etruscans and then the Romans adopted the Greek form, but neither made substantial changes to the shape or proportions of the character. Sometime in the third or fourth century A.D. the rounded lowercase ‘m’ began to appear, but it was almost lost in later centuries. In medieval writing, it became common practice to place a stroke over the preceding letter instead of writing the ‘m’ (probably because ‘m’ is one of the more time-consuming letters to write).

Later Greek

Roman

The Romans also pressed the M and six other letters – I, X, V, L, C, and D – into double-duty as their numerals, and gave M the honor of standing in for the highest value, 1,000.

Rockwell A beloved artist, Norman Rockwell, captured American culture in many forms in the 20th century. These works were reproduced on magazine covers, greeting cards, calendars, and prints, to name a few. Rockwell was born on February 3, 1894, in New York City. In high school, he studied art at the New York School of Art. He received the first commission as an artist at age 15 for Christmas cards. Before reaching age 20, Rockwell had become the art director for “Boys’ Life,” the magazine of the Boy Scouts of America. In 1910, Rockwell studied at the National Academy of Design. Soon he left the Academy to join the Art Students League. There he learned under Thomas Fogarty and George Bridgman. With the help of Fogarty, Rockwell learned skills for commercial art. Under Bridgman, Rockwell learned technical skills.

Ten years later, Rockwell and his family settled in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. In 1959, Mary Rockwell died suddenly. In 1960, Rockwell and his son Thomas published his autobiography. Excerpts appeared in eight back-to-back issues of the “Post.” He married his third wife, Molly, in 1961. In the final stage of his career, Rockwell worked ten years for “Look” magazine. From the 1960s to the 1980s, Rockwell themes included poverty, civil rights, and space exploration. After a long, productive life, Rockwell died in 1978. He left his work trusted to the Old Corner House Stockbridge Historical Society (now the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Four pictures called the “Four Freedoms,” and inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt, were published consecutively in the “Post” in 1943. These pictures traveled in a show funded by the “Post” and the U.S. Treasury. All in all, Rockwell brought in over $130 million in American war bonds. Perhaps the 1943 burning of his studio, including many props and paintings, diminished his personal contribution to the U.S. war effort.

The juxtaposition of type and image is a pure example of simultaneity. through the use of simultaneity images, it can be dynamic, powerful, dramatic and exciting through the use of angles, cropping, presentation and composition. Graphic elements such as shapes, patterns and lines all assist in establishingbetter visual hierachy.
