Having briefly touched upon Hangul, a historic constructed script. I would like to mention Enochian, the supposed script and language of God's Angels as recieved by a medium in the middle-ages... or around that time. It has since been used in magick (yes, magick aka sorcery as opposed to stage magic) and a whole Enochian branch of magick has developped around it, a fairly Judeo-Christian branch for that matter. I am including a picture, showing my message (in English) in the Enochian script. <<<<<< In the same vein, I have a TTF of something called "Theban", another magickal script, which incedentally was used from time to time for the lettering on the cloak/robes worn by "The Master" in the TV show "Doctor Who". Any takers? I have to be honest, and say that I've yet to see a magickal script that didn't look _incredibly_ corny, but maybe I'm just young, brash and inexperienced. It strikes me that any self respecting thaumaturgist would use a logographic script, but I can't for the life of me explain why... --- Pb ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
