Alphabetum Directum (Vertical Alphabet)
Alphabetum Directum or the Vertical Alphabet was created by
Samuel Barnes during a boring world geography class. Samuel
modelled his alphabet on the Vine alphabet,
though made some major changes to the structure of his alphabet.
Samuel uses his alphabet to write random notes and comments
during class, and for doodles.
- Written from left to right in vertical columns
- Punctuation is used to indicate word division
- Can be used to write Latin and English
