Learn to Write Aramaic — whoops…!

So I noticed that there’s a relatively new book out on the market called “Learn to Write Aramaic” (2011)… and like other book covers I’ve noticed there were some problems…

That lamad needs to be a *bit* higher. In Herodian script that makes it look like a nun, which turns shlama (peace) into shnama (which… isn’t even a word).

Not the best testament to its accuracy, but I’m honestly trying my very best to avoid judging a book by its cover.
