Write English with Tengwar: A Workbook for English General Use (Paperback)
Want to write like an elf, but not learn a language? Then this book is for you
Welcome to General Use Tengwar, a mode Tolkien developed for using his Elven letters to write English. He used it to write the text on the title page of The Lord of the Rings, Christmas greetings to friends, and even secret messages to his fans.
After J. R. R. Tolkien's passing, many pieces of his essays and notes on his languages and writing systems were published, as well as some of his gorgeous tengwar manuscripts. Today there is more information to draw on than there ever was before. This workbook contains the latest research and discoveries made about tengwar, including a number system unknown until recently
This isn't just a book telling you what each symbol stands for; it teaches you to form them correctly and to be able to read what you've written. Furthermore, you'll be learning tengwar not as though it is a code, but like a real-world writing system. The text even describes how to format documents.
Whether you're putting a powerful Elvish inscription on your magnificent sword or writing secret notes in class, this book will show you the way
