The Deseret alphabet was developed in the mid-19th century by the board of regents of the University of Deseret (later the University of Utah) under the direction of Brigham Young, second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was intended to help make learning to write English easier. This wasnโ€™t very successful, though the alphabet does have interesting phonemic features, as well as being a fascinating part of Mormon history. This edition of Through the Looking-Glass is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by John H. Jenkins and Michael Everson.
