Free Tengwar Font Project

We live in exciting times! The well known Tengwar enthusiast J. “Mach” Wust recently started the Free Tengwar Font Project, aiming at collecting free (as in freedom) Unicode Tengwar fonts and associated tools in one place. This I think is a great initiative, and I hope to make Tengwar Telcontar a part of this project.

Mach has also created a monospace font, FreeMonoTengwar, which, in the same spirit as Tengwar Telcontar, is intended to be a fully usable unicode font for Tengwar. Mach has quite ingeniously tried to solve the problem of tehta-alignment by means of ligatures, which have the not insignificant advantage of being supported by many more systems and programs than Graphite fonts.
