The Digital Script of the Loonese

Notes from the text of Quantus Qwo's Treatise on Lunar Civilization

It was the noble Cudley, first postmaster general of the Republic of the
Moon, who developed the digital alphabet depicted on this 22 Asteri
stamp. He allegedly developed the alphabet utilizing an antique DOS
system word  processor that was brought to the moon as scrap metal
in the twenty second century.

The word processor is believed to be from the decade of the 1980's.
The curious enormous pixels found in this device's system have since
become standardized in Loonese writings rendered in the sacred
alphabet developed by Cudley.
