Nice script! Looks as if it could be evolved into a cursive version (in some centuries). I don't think that the forms you show is very suited to be carved on wood due to the many right angles and the narrow parallels. I imagine that they use another variant for wood carving. g_0ry@_ˆs: j. 'mach' wust
