Dinotopia alphabet new

This is the Dinotopia alphabet from the 20th anniversary edition from page 69

The Footprint Alphabet was used mostly by three-toed dinosaurs, which were the best scribes[1], to write messages in sand on riverbanks or beaches. They wrote anything from warnings to jokes. Most Dinotopian writing is written out in sandboxes — this saves on paper scrolls, since it is easier to erase. The scribes, while 'writing', act more like dancers; hopping, twisting and stepping to make the right marks.
