Constructed vertical writing systems?

Date:Tuesday, April 22, 2003, 8:07
Good day all,

I am new here, so apologies if I am asking in the wrong forum.

I am interested in vertical writing systems. So far the only such writing
systems I know of are classical Chinese (and derivates e.g. Khitan), Manchu,
Tolkien's Sarati, and Aniese (by iisem). Are there any other vertical
writing systems around? If so, where can I find information on them?

Also, I am curious to know more about the Aniese script -- I have heard that
it is "beautiful", but have not been able to find any information on it.
