This typeface is for all fans of "Lord of the Rings", the literary classic by R.R. Tolkien, recently popular through the LOTR and Hobbit trilogies.
For his fictional world "Middle Earth" Tolkien designed the "Tengwar" alphabet. Supposedly the writing of the Elves, Tolkien also used it to write the languages (invented by himself) of other races in Middle Earth.
Fanjofey is a latin alphabet - using many traits of the Tengwar letters, thus giving your texts a "Lord-of-the-Rings" look and feel. Some of the vowel signs above and below the letters are added in the companion typeface "Fanjofey Leoda", enhancing the "Elvish" feeling.
Fanjofey font contains 213 defined characters and 205 unique glyphs.
The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (92), Latin-1 Supplement (90), Latin Extended-A (6), Latin Extended-B (1), Spacing Modifier Letters (2), Greek and Coptic (1), General Punctuation (16), Currency Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (1), Private Use Area (2).

his is a Tengwar lookalike font, AFAIK the first one of its kind. What is Tengwar anyway? It's an alphabet that John R. R. Tolkien devised for his trilogy "The Lord of the Rings". It is meant to be the way how the Elvish language of Quenya is written. Tengwar consists of consonants, vowels are marked by diacritic symbols (little dots and strokes). A number of digital fonts already exist for this alphabet. I tried to make a latin alphabet reminiscent of Tengwar letters. You can find more information on the Tengwar alphabet e. g. on: http://www.geocities.com/fontmaster.geo/tengwar/index.htm (Dan Smith's site, who makes some Tengwar fonts himself)
