Tengwar New Light And Tengwar New Bold. This project is a kind of playing with typography. J.R.R. Tolkien created new race – Elves with their language, culture and stylish alphabet. But did you ever imagine that the Elves evolve to present time ? Would they have their own Helvetica ?

That is fantastic.  Would this ever be offered as a TTF?

No idea - I guess we will have to check his website now and then.

+Hína Kemenduro thank you for the review!
I have long contemplated starting a project to design a modern sans-serif variant Tengwar typeface but I am very much afraid I lack the skillset - typeface design is a profession after all.
I will have a look at the Free Tengwar project.

the bitter cold of winter? I don't think I have experienced that for the past 8 years; the climate here in the UK has been positively balmy, and if temperatures fall below zero for a week and 2 inches of snow fall the whole country just grinds to a halt because of the shock:)

I've just realized I could've written the above in Quenya, so:
I naira, ringa Hríve? Intyan lá cennenyes tere loaron tolto; i *vilwiste sisse *Angelnoresse né ammilya, ar cé i úre lanta nu munta tere otsole, ar hríse nápo atta lanta, ilya nóre pusta paliénen...

*vilwiste "weather" (change of the air)
*Angelnore "land of the Angles"

I'm not sure about LN cluster. Isn't it illegal? Then we may have it as *Ingildórë.
