Kitonyo    Kitonyo

Kitonyo was creatied by DJ Hipsher in 2004. It is a cypher for English. He was inspired by reading the Lord of the Rings to create an alphabet that looked old and could be something you would find in an ancient manuscript or book. Originally he wrote the alphabet by hand using a thick marker pen, but couldn't convert the handwritten letters to electronic format so manipulated a Russian letter that was similar to the way he was drawing it. He named the alphabet after the conlang he's worked on for years.
