The Shetland dialect (also known as Shaetlan) is a language with a complex history, which has been passed down aurally through generations rather than in writing. This book aims to celebrate Shaetlan through providing educational insight into the dialect and its rich cultural history. To accompany the text, a display typeface was developed which references Shaetlan’s cultural and linguistic history through its letterforms.
