Exotic-Looking Typefaces

Those who liked the pseudo-Cyrillic of the Vancouver Sun cartoon that I discussed yesterday will also likely find interesting this post by Geek Of All Trades on "Faux Exotic Typefaces", the highlight of which is an example of Devanagari made to look like Urdu.

Addendum 2007-07-28: Another interesting post on this topic is this one by Joel Martinsen on Chinese made to look like Tibetan. Incidentally, I've seen the movie "Mountain Patrol" whose title he mentions and recommend it highly.
