What is "Hermograph" anyway?
our goal and our life-long interest in anything Mercury or Hermes, most
especially the planet and the mythological god of the ancient Greeks
and Romans. Hermo
is the possessive form of Hermes, "that
belonging to Hermes." Thus, for example, the coordinate system on the
planet is a Hermographic system. Graph,
as you can guess from
the context here, has to do with the term "written." Cartography
is, loosely, the writing of maps. Photography is "light writing."
Putting these together, Hermograph
to "the writings or words of Hermes", the messenger of the Olympian
gods. Therefore anything he said was really important! We at Hermograph Press hope
our important messages, our Informative Publishing,
are given similar
attributes by you, the readers! That's our goal.
and our logo---that's based on the (tilted) astronomical
symbol for the planet Mercury. Some say this is his caduceus, his wand.
Another representation says this is the winged god himself (he has
wings on his hat). As he flies around with his messages, he's now
absorbed in one of our publications.
fun, we've started to assemble a place where everything
we can find on the Web and elsewhere on Mercury or Hermes can be found.
