because i wanted to use the latin alphabet

The Elementarium, by Isobel Winter  

What is it?

The Elementarium is a script based on the Latin alphabet that I created about three years ago.

What is it for?

Initially I created The Elementarium as a way to write down spells, sigils, and other magical words that had anything to do with the elements, or that I wanted to embellish with the power of the elements. These days I use it for all magical purposes. Is especially effective as protection and spell charms.

Who is it for? Can I use it?

Anyone who wants to use it! I’m opening it up to the wider public because I feel that they would benefit from a magical script to use that they know was written by a witch, instead of using one in which they are unsure of the origins or rules. I’d love to see what you use it for; please post a picture and tag me in it, or tag it as #elementarium.

Why use it?

Unlike conventional linguistic scripts, this one was invented specifically with magic in mind. It automatically has a deeper connection to your inner energy. I created the script by meditating and then writing symbols down with my eyes closed, visualising how they would fit into each letter.

A letter from my language isn’t on the script, what should I do?

Send me an ask telling me which letter this is and I will create it! When I wrote it I was learning Norwegian and Swedish, hence why those letters are present. But I truly believe that everyone should be able to write magically in their own language, so please don’t be afraid to send me a request.

Can I get a tattoo of it?

Of course! I have a friend who did so and it looks great, I’m waiting on her to send me a picture so I can show you all. Just make sure you don’t mess up how you’ve written it down; I don’t want to be blamed for a shitty design.


Hello! This is my alphabet that I created for anyone who wants to use it-for magical reasons in particular! It is designed to be written in cursive, but anyone is welcome to change the way it is written to whatever their own personal preference may be.

I call it shadow script because of my username. My username, viv-umbra, is a combination of two Latin words with the meaning living shadows.

I tried my best to keep the characters relatively easy and quick to write, but as I’ve never created an alphabet for such a large group of other people before I may not have done as well as I would like. I hope you guys find it useful anyway.

If you make a post using shadow script, please use the hashtag #shadowscript so I can see it! I would love to see any sigils or other things made using this alphabet.

Anyway, I hope you are all doing wonderfully, and I wish you the best of luck in your magical endeavors!
