i just drifted through the wikipedia and found a link to dan smith’s tengwar fonts.
tengwar is, of course, j.r.r. tolkien’s alphabet for several middle-earth languages – especially quenya and sindarin, two elvish languages.
when i had a look at his font-packages, i was impressed by his licence:
- These files are Postcardware. If you have installed these fonts, enjoy using
them, and plan on using them in the future, please send me a postcard or letter
(using an attractive or interesting stamp). My current postal address can be
found at the bottom of my this read-me file. If you supply me with your email
address, I’ll try to write back.
i like that!
definitely something to keep in mind for the non-photographic stuff i’m going to publish here.
or how about a small note in my baccalaureate papers ;-)
oh – and you can transcribe your name into tengwar over at Måns Björkman’s pages!
(choose “png” as your output format if you don’t have any tengwar packages installed)
nerdy, but interesting
