This font represents the Tengwar/Tehtar alphabet of the late Prof. J. R. R. Tolkien as it may have been written by the Sea-Elves of Tol Eressa (ref. The Silmarilion, JRRT). They were said to be fond of sailing and of the sea, and to have ahd a great fleet of swan-ships which were their prized posession. Cirdan the Shipwright, a Sindarin elf, was kin to them, as the Sindar were descendants of Teleri who did not leave Middle-earth for Valinor. To reflect their love of swans and the sea, I have stylized the Feanorian Tengwar to look like swans or other waterfowl, and several of the Tehtar to look like feathers.
The keymap follows the Windows Tengwar Standard keymap established by Daniel S. Smith. All characters are present and approximately to scale. The size ration of Dan Smith's standard Tengwar font, Tengwar Quenya, and the current font is approximately 10::6.65, or 3::2 for a near approximation. Thus when using Tengwar Quenya at 16 pt, Tengwar Teleri looks best at 24 pt, and so on. Because of the stylization, some users may wish to initial other Tengwar fonts with Teleri. In this case, Teleri tehtar are to be used and not scaled versions of other fonts' tehtar.
Tengwar Teleri font contains 221 defined characters and 108 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (96), Latin Extended-A (5), Latin Extended-B (1), Spacing Modifier Letters (3), Greek and Coptic (1), General Punctuation (16), Letterlike Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (3).
