Since you mentioned in the other mail that you are comfortable using
inkscape for calligraphy, your best first step would be to design each
glyph (each of the initial, medial, final and isolated forms, as well
as any ligatures) in inkscape and publish those SVGs.  You can also
manually combine those into a few words or sentences to see how the
glyphs look in practice.  

Once you have the glyphs in inkscape (as one glyph per SVG), getting
from there to a working font is much easier.
