Move from writing systems that developed over time to scripts that were deliberately designed by an individual or group, often for use as a universal system. See how these “featural” writing systems betray their intentional design through an examination of examples including Korean Han'gul, Lodwick’s Universall Alphabet, and J. R. R. Tolkien’s Tengwar and Certar.
