Jedi Texts - Constructed Script

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we get a glimpse of the ancient Jedi texts. And in the movie artbook, The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, by Phil Szostak, you can see photographs of some of the pages. Here's a sample from page 63:

I love the design of these Jedi pages. The layout, color, and writing is beautiful. Interestingly, the writing system is not the standard Star Wars constructed script, aurebesh. It's a mysterious script that I've never seen before... I haven't been able to decipher what the symbols represent, but I've drafted a list of the letters that we see on the six pages that are included in the artbook. Here's the list:

Do these glyphs correspond to letters in English or another language? I wonder :)
