Is there a con-historical explanation for such a diversity...
or a particular advantage brought by each new font...

Kala is more of an artlang than a conlang. It is not associated with any conworld, etc.

Did you mean it is not a constructed language... (a cypher or something...)

I highly doubt that. masako seems to be using "conlang" to mean a constructed language associated with a conworld, given the entirety of what was said. Sure, that's now how most people here seem to use the term, but masako explained how it was being used in the next sentence. Besides, I've never seen anyone describe a cypher as an artlang.

Often the artistic calligraphy does not give much importance to the transcribed words until some perfectly assemic...

Each one more beautiful than the last!

I like kenaya least. It reminds me of modern instruction manuals full of strange icons.

Tipeta, monoko, moya, ayeli and naua I like best, the last bestest of all. Ayeli reminds me Sussian logogrammes from The World. The twisting vines of naua are most appealing!

Quite. That's a stretch on a good day.

You seem to be babbling incoherently.

Ayeli is my adaptation of Jipi's Ornament script (used with permission).

Naua has long been my favorite too...it's just not very practical as a every-day script.

Carsten Becker, there's a name from the deep past! Also a lovely script!

Some of the strokes are also reminiscent of Talarian cursive script.

Perhaps not, but lovely all the same!

I enjoy naua very much, as long as I'm not botching it.

That second part should not be ignored as it very much qualifies the first part.

I was wrong, because of your full stop...
And your very calligraphic orientation...
