The Evolution of Speech Bubbles: From Ancient Symbolism to Modern Art
The speech bubble (as we know it) first appeared in The Glasgow Looking Glass, what is regarded as the world’s first comic magazine, in 1825. Though it’s history goes much deeper…
“Speech Scrolls” can be traced back as far as 650BC where Mesoamerican cultures used curved shapes in a hieroglyphic manner to symbolize a character’s speech.
“Speech Bands” or “Banderoles”, which looked like unfurled strips of parchment with words, were used in 12th - 16th century European tapestries.
Roy Lichtenstein and the Pop Art Influence
