Seems this would take some work to generate significantly different alphabets. So far all the ones I tried ended up looking virtually the same. Makes me wonder what initial figures they used to generate some of the samples shown.

If the Narnians had wound up using this alphabet (scroll down), I think Aslan would have been been severely pissed off.

It really is a great link, but I'm afraid it has been posted before.
