Are you thinking of the one which looks like a diagram of a molecule? I was thinking that "semantic primitives" are sometimes called "atoms of meaning"... and I combined that with an idea for using single characters from Unicode, one per concept, as a briefscript... and combined that with some vague notion of "non-linear writing systems"... and there you go. The second one down is just a melange of glyphs from a font called "Crop Circles." Bottom left corner is a random string of glyphs from a cipher I made, based on the Myanmar script. Bottom right is modified characters from the Yi script. Sorry about the cover illustration... I know it's mediocre but I had already gone way past my own deadline, so I had to create _some_ image, _any_image, and go to press.
