Dancing Men Cipher

Also known as a Sherlock Cipher, this basic code comes from the Sherlock Holmes story “The Adventure of the Dancing Men.”  It is a very basic substitution cipher but with fun little Keith Haring men. The end of words was signified with tiny flags in the men’s hands.

Wikipedia lists the story as Arthur Conan Doyle’s third favorite.
