Hello Andre!

Go to this web page:

Download the textbook in English by Steve and Dianne Parkhurst (number  
1 on that web page). It is written in Spanish Sign Language from  
Madrid, and their "writing horizontally from left to right" is  
beautiful! I love reading it!

Go to page 214 in the PDF document and you will find this page with a  
poem written in a curve and written from the Top View. Please see  

SignWriting is a flexible writing system and everyone is welcome to  
write in the direction that is good for the document....

You start reading this poem from the bottom and up the curve...this  
was written by a Deaf person in Madrid I believe...

Talk to you all tomorrow - gotta go!  Val ;-)
