This page contains pointers to the Metafont source for a couple of
Tengwar and Cirth fonts
Please note: If you don't know what TeX is, you don't want these fonts.
These are two fonts with Tolkien's tengwar and cirth. Here is an
example of the tengwar (at Laserwriter resolution):
and a PostScript example of the cirth can be viewed
If you want to get these fonts, you can fetch a
gzipped tar file, or you can fetch the various files selectively.
The readme gives some not very helpful
information on what's there.
Ivan Derzhanski has produced a set of macros for LaTeX and Plain TeX
which allow the easy use both of my fonts above and of Mike Urban's
alternative tengwar. The files are bundled in
TengTeX.tar.gz (270KB, with
documentation) or can be browsed in the TengTeX directory.
TengTeX for Spanish
Conrado Badenas and Javier Rojas have added definitions suitable for
setting Spanish in tengwar using the TengTex package. These can be
found at Conrad's
Computer Modern Old English
This is a little font with Computer modern versions of the Old English
letters thorn (þ), eth (ð) and yogh (not in ASCII). It also
has the Polish ogonek accent. There are nowadays complete fonts with
these letters, so the cmoe fonts are superfluous; but I leave them
around for people who just need these letters occasionally.
Here are the
gzipped tar file, individual
files, and readme.
Computer Modern Sans-Serif Math Italic
If you want to produce LaTeX overheads in Sans-Serif, you have a problem
with maths; even if you hack the font description files to give
sans-serif math roman letters, the greek is still not sans-serif. This
package provides cmssmi fonts, which are math italic (including greek)
in sans-serif. No installation instructions: if you don't know how to
mess with LaTeX fonts, you shouldn't use non-standard fonts. (You
could also improve (in my opinion) the greek in the cmbright fonts;
this could be done just by dropping the ssgreekl.mf file in as a
replacement for greekl.mf).
Gzipped tar file cmssmi.tar.gz (10KB).
Truetype tengwar for Windows
Dan Smith (email@example.com) provides:
A number of TrueType fonts for Windows, including various tengwar and
cirth fonts; and pointers to other font-related resources. This
may be found here. Please note: don't ask me anything about these. Ask Dan Smith!
