I am an amateur font friend from Budapest, Hungary. Letters are the 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 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
