Alfa-Larawan    Alfa-Larawan (Feale Version)

Alfa-Larawan was invented by Frederick Victor Paredes Añana as an alternative way to write Tagalog. It was inspired by the Baybayin script and the name is a combination of alphabet and the Tagalog word larawan which means picture or image. The appearance of each character was inspired by the human head as well as the mouth & jaw movements. Alfa-Larawan comes in two versions: the Male Version and the Female Version.
