270809script

Some stuff I’ve been working on.

Earlier work at further abstractions/stylisation of the script for a third was done using ordinary pens, but this stuff has been made by using an actual ink-pen, to get a certain feel to it: restrictions of its use, etc, impose certain forms on it that become a Look for the script, giving it character, in the same way that all the other scripts of the world have been characterised by the material and method they have been inscribed with: cunei-form as an extreme example, and arabic and hebrew as a closer example.

The useage of ink-pen here is that the reed is vertically straight aligned (90 degrees?), as in my first plans for the third generation.

You can compare the above glyphs to their second generation glyphs in this image:
