Evolution of the Roman Alphabet

Hard to say who made this and why (tell me if you know), but this really simple animated .gif I just dug up does a great job of demonstrating the development of the latin alphabet. Thanks to whomever cobbled it together back in 2007- the .gif, that is, not the writing system.

It's one alphabet that is very close to my heart, so I hope you take time to appreciate it. 

Bonus word: 
Syllabary - n. a set of written symbols that represent (or approximate) syllables
