aldersprig: an ancient-looking world map (map)
[personal profile] aldersprig posting in [community profile] noviceconlangers
I have a nice series of letters that look do-able in pen-and-paper, but I am realizing, rather to my frustration, that I may have to change them based on the tool the people use to render them. :-/

I'm thinking that this started as quick stick-in-dirt characters long ago, but moved to ... um... sometihng-on-hide, then to something-on-paper. They certainly have paper now, but what do they use to write on it? Brushes? Quills?

Roman reed pens seem like a start, in part because I like the aesthetic of the thick-and-thin lines. Decent description here, art drawn with one here.

and one more site.
