The script known as the King's Letters was, according to Gilbert Norrell, devised by John Uskglass himself:"...he invented a writing of his own to preserve his thoughts for later times. Presumably this writing mirrored the workings of his own mind..."[30]. At the time of the Revival of English Magic there was no-one left alive who could read the King's Letters, the last Reader having died shortly before. Later it was discovered that the peculiar blue marks covering the skin of Vinculus were in fact the text of the King's Book, written in the King's Letters.
