Glyphilia: by Robert McNally. "This page is for gylphiles, i.e., lovers of glyphs and systems of thought integrated with glyphs. Not intended to be exhaustive or authoritative, it's a showcase of some of the more interesting glyph-oriented sites I've come across."

Model languages can be everything from a few words of made-up slang to a rigorously developed system of interrelated imaginary tongues." Links arranged by topics
