This week, I’ve written some phrases about the days of the week in Tapissary’s ‘Sunrise’ style.
A frequently used Art text style (called the ‘Sunrise’ style) in Tapissary is generally written from right-to-left as in Hebrew or Arabic. Reading right-to-left is called the ‘sunrise’ mode because your eyes travel from the east margin of a page to the west margin.
Many of the çelloglyphs in sunrise mode have elongated shapes that differ from the forms in the ‘sunset’ mode (written from left-to-right as in English).
The elongated forms of the sunrise mode allow the writer to build up a design within the basic rules of layering: right-to-left, then top-to-bottom.
In the following text of the film, most of the phrases are double layered. A couple examples show triple layering.
The days of the week in Tapissary:
Monday - Monnidi
Tuesday - Tsëxxi
Wednesday - Wenndi
Thursday - Thissxri
Friday - Fxematti
Saturday - Sataxxi
Sunday - Zbaxxcéti
