English using Shavian & Quickscript

The "Shavian Proposed British Alphabet" was created in the 1950s by Kingsley Reed as part of a £500 competition financed by a trust set up under George Bernard Shaw's will.

Mr. Reed went on to revise his alphabet into a more cursive form called "Quickscript" or "Quikscript".
