How to write and read Georgian.

Here is a simple guide to identify Georgian letters.
I have included all the modern letters and have not included Cyrillic/Latin transliteration as they can be open to discussion.
On the left is the standard type font of the letter, in the centre is how the letter is constructed when handwriting and on the right are examples of the end result.
Letters on the right of black lines are shorthand versions of the previous letter which are not recognised as individual letters but are very common in handwriting.

This is only good for the "cavalry" alphabet and is not completely comprehensive but it is a great start for all of you who are willing to attempt to learn to transcribe all those Georgian items out there.

Georgian is all written in lower case there is not an upper case (half as many letters to learn right off the bat!).
