The Anchor Alphabet is a font that translates the 26 letters of the latin alphabet into 26 icons. Each icon represents a word that starts with the same letter in three different languages: English, Spanish and French. Following this methodology, the letter A is represented by an anchor as the Spanish for it is Ancla and the French is Ancre.

This singularity makes the Anchor Alphabet a powerful pedagogic tool. It can be used for instance, on a multilingual school to help learning the alphabet. It can be more fluid and fun to work with icons than with letters.

Learning to read the Anchor Alphabet helps developing cognitive skills and the association between symbols.

Graphic example of how a paragraph of text is written with the Alphabet Anchor using a fragment of Hamlet:

"The prince of Denmark, and a student at the University of Wittenberg. At the beginning of the play, Hamlet's father, King Hamlet, has recently died, and his mother, Queen Gertrude, has married the new king, Hamlet's uncle Claudius. Hamlet is melancholy, bitter, and cynical, full of hatred for his uncle and disgust at his mother for marrying him".
