Are you thinking of the one which looks like a diagram of a molecule? I was
thinking that "semantic primitives" are sometimes called "atoms of
meaning"... and I combined that with an idea for using single characters
from Unicode, one per concept, as a briefscript... and combined that with
some vague notion of "non-linear writing systems"... and there you go.
The second one down is just a melange of glyphs from a font called "Crop
Circles." Bottom left corner is a random string of glyphs from a cipher I
made, based on the Myanmar script. Bottom right is modified characters from
the Yi script.
Sorry about the cover illustration... I know it's mediocre but I had already
gone way past my own deadline, so I had to create _some_ image, _any_image,
and go to press.
