Have you by any chance looked at Hangul? While its parts are not combinatoric per se, they do "combine" to form syllables that are both beautiful in shape and easy to read. However, I am of the opinion that Hangul is a fluke, for it has been the model for many constructed scripts that have all failed to capture its artistic sense. If anyone knows of another Hangul-like script that they judge artistic, let me know. :Peter -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE8RjIuevbW9GDdlVARApjKAJ9zR8/Vh2HxhIk6W6dX/a3cNQylSQCfZTqK pjGaGv66nwBzuGIcO/l+qRs= =pjqY -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
