I am an amateur font friend from Budapest, Hungary. Letters are refuge to me, an escape from the brutality of the world. For I seek harmony and quietude, and beauty in small things. I adopted the LOTR theme for several reasons. One: out of deference to J.R.R. Tolkien. Two: I think I have something in common with his hobbit characters. Three: for practical reasons. It is hard to find good names for fonts not claimed by someone else. Tolkien has a large untapped source of such potential names. Four: his fine prose serves as neutral text to test my fonts on.

This is the fractal pattern I used for Elbereth. Feel free to clone it, and use it to create anything you fancy.
I will upgrade it soon to the latest version showing more iterations.This is a clone

A fractal font project. Work in progress.

This font was inspired by the works of Christophe Szpajdel (Lord of the Logos, 2010, Die Gestalten Verlag), as well as by the film trilogy and the following game titles (e.g. Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, 2014) based on Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Given the game theme, and the 48 bricks vertical limit, I thought more or less
around pixel art, or pixel fonts. This is my endeavour to make a spiky blackletter in Szpajdel's black metal style that evokes the terror of Mordor at pixel level.
This font has been extensively tested for best kerning, yet some issues might have remained unresolved.This is a clone
