Ada Yardeni

A jewel with many facets and a scholar of Hebrew paleography and epigraphy in her own right, Ada is also a superb graphic artist who specializes in script. Her unique talents and knowledge in this field are legendary and make her stand apart. Many are the scholars of Hebrew scripts of all kinds who, at one time or another, turned to her for help and advice in deciphering an ancient text. Ada’s keen eye places her in a class of her own.

Her renderings of ancient inscriptions can be found in literally hundreds of publications. Her extensive publications in these disciplines, solo or partnered with other scholars, attest to her outstanding talent and scholarship. Ada created The Book of Hebrew Script first in Hebrew. Each word, every drawing and all insights are her own. Translated by her into English and ably edited by David Meisels. it was first published by Carta. The outstanding quality of this unrivaled title is attested to by the fact that the venerable BRITISH LIBRARY published the exact same volume under its own imprint.
