Welcome!

The most interesting part of any text is its subtext; the subtleties of what's left unsaid for dramatic effect. In this way, languages have been encoded for millennia. Metaphors, allegories and symbolism are the tools we study in literature courses around the globe, but there are a myriad of other "secret" communication modes that are equally (if not more) fascinating.

This site is dedicated to coding systems, developed to convey information in ways that are clearly defined, reliable, and yet often subversive in their implementations.
