The Bamum scripts are an evolutionary series of six scripts created for the Bamum language by King Njoya [1] of Cameroon at the turn of the 20th century. They are notable for evolving from a pictographic system to a partially alphabetic syllabic script in the space of 14 years, from 1896 to 1910. Bamum type was cast in 1918, but the script fell into disuse around 1931.
