The Book of Woo Itself

Other appearances of the Book-of-Woo glyphs

The font used in the Book-of-Woo appears in several other comics:

The letters pya jald daxd transliterate to len insa anpa in the language Toki Pona which can be translated to "cloth inside bottom" describing the word "lingerie" as many had suspected from the content of the comic strip.

The letters aASOy seem to follow a different set of rules than the Book of Woo (a can't be followed directly by A without one of the switching signs uU in between). They don't form a word in Toki Pona either.

Discussion Forum

To date, pretty much all discussion regarding the decrypting efforts have taken place in the comment thread for the original comic post (http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/07/29/0500-the-book-of-woo/).
