New Glyph Style

A while back I formatted the dictionary with a simpler glyph style. I thought it would be helpful to use a very basic style for the dictionary. You saw it was very blocky.

I’m trading it in for a more stylized format. After all, there’s no sense in being boring.

The beautiful thing is, it’s now actually easier.

Here’s how it looks.

Guess what this says.

Something new I tired reminiscent of Chinese. Nouns are incorporated by verbs, proposition, etc. Nothing intentionally grammatical. More so grouped by utterance.

Stone Glyphs Return

Here is the same absurd sentence from the last post written in its full glyph form. I’ve neglected them in favor of the shorthand, but they’re beautiful in their own right.
