I do not see that it matters at all, one glyph or two.
English "oo" is one glyph in "zoo" and two in
One can even easily imagine a cipher encoding not
letters, but their constituting strokes, e.g.
q -> "cat paw" (or just "cp" if you prefer)
d -> "cat tail" (ct)
o -> "cat dog" (cd)
b -> "tail dog" (td)
p -> "paw dog" (pd)
i -> "stump dot" (sd -- it's all right: there aren't any stump-dogs!)
n -> "stump awning" (sa)
m -> "stump awning awning" (saa)
h -> "tail awning" (ta)
u -> "hook stump" (hs)
Decipher this now: saasdsasdsaahssaa
I leave you to apply a polyalphabetic cipher on it
