Gnommish Gnommish

The Gnommish alphabet appears in the Artemis Fowl books by Eoin Colfer. It is supposedly the ancestor of Egyptian Hieroglyphs and is used to write Gnommish, the language of the fairies. In the books it is used to write English and appears on the front covers, at the beginning of each chapter and runs along the bottom of each page.
