As things stand, the countries I'd hope to visit would be Indonesia,
Vietnam, China, Liberia, Iraq, Israel, Mongolia, Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire,

I am currently fundraising to try to make this tour happen (details at
alphabets-project/), but in the meantime I need to find potential hosts
for the Alphabets exhibition.

that might want to host the Alphabets, please let me know by email.
