I like that one too.

I should actually make a list of every pretty scripty I like.......but that would be impossible because it's over 1000 ( no I'm not joking ). :shock:

This isn't including mine though.

I really like cursive scripts, both constructed and natural. Of natural scripts, I've recently come to like Kurrent and Suetterlin, but the beautiful scripts of about 100 years ago I still find appealing. http://www.iampeth.com/

Constructed, I think the simplicity of Kapunuan is appealling, naturally the Arabic inspired scripts (I've accidently closed the page, Tchiaar I think it's called), and the continious line scripts like Midlander, and Troitrosking.
Native: English
Very good: Irish
Reasonable: German, French
Very basic: Latin.

Kapunuan and Midlander are also on my list.

I should get around to posting more of the pretty scripties from Omniglot that I love.

But later as it's late here.

The question that arises in my mind is, how many of them are you fluent in? Even 10% of a list that long would be impressive. :¬)

I tend to the opinion that, regardless of how beautiful a given script is, if you can’t scrawl a hasty note in it and still have it look at least presentable, it shouldn’t be on the list of “prettiest” conscripts. For this reason, even though it is very pretty, I can’t include Tengwar among the prettiest. I’d /like/ to cast a second vote for Sarati, but I haven’t used it often enough to form an opinion on its usability at high speed, which so far seems lower than I’d like.

My own mutated variant of Latin, which for lack of a better name I call gsteemsovian, doesn’t even come close, alas.

I tend to agree.

But they're still pretty scripties. :mrgreen:

But you want them to be pretty scripties on all counts of writing. So I would suggest making a simpler form or something of the sort for pretty scripties that don't look too good when written rapidly so that they could still be aesthetically pleasing to the eye when they are......

......and in my case make me go crazy with happiness at all the pretty scripties! ^^

About the list of all the pretty scripties that I like is impossible to have them all together because this is counts for years worth of pretty scripties that I've come across. Sadly some of them I'll never see again because the sites that once had them are broken.

...Or I lost them due to my HD crashing. Quite a few I was able to get back but just as many unfortunately were lost. But I'll never forget them.

But for the recent list ( as in 2009 ) is still over 1000 ( not including the ones from Omniglot )! As for the ones I'm fluent in that's actually quite a few ( not including my own ). Tengwar is obviously one of them. :P I should actually post a list on my blog sometime to get organized because the lists that I posted here I have to look back when making another one to make sure I don't repeat anything. XD

But I'll definitely get around to it. Now to pick out all the ones from Omniglot that's going to be fun......so much fun. There's even a script from there that's not on there anymore but I have the images of it on my photobucket.....*evil laughter*

Pretty scripties! YAY! :mrgreen: Also when I play with one that I like a whole new pretty scripty is born.....MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :mrgreen: I'll get to the list now...or at least I'll try, it's so many!

This is going to be fun because for me it's like a trip down pretty scripty memory lane!

@Serali, care to post the links? :mrgreen:

Anyway I'm looking at creating or at least adopting a new script for the conlang I'm working on hehe. It's been a while since conlangery has entered my mind. The conlang I'm working on is kind of weird sounding at this stage.
