Kapunuan was created by Joseph Barretto in 2006. He imagined a writing system inspired by trees and created by a people who revered them. The word kapunuan is Tagalog for a group of trees, but also means source or beginning.
The following chart represents the six trunk orders and the six types of fruits possible within each order.
Trunks and fruits combine to form the following letters:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
