character 1. The Tengwar of Feanor, a table of letterforms
resembling the beautiful Celtic half-uncial hand of the "Book
of Kells". Invented and described by J.R.R. Tolkien in "The
Lord of The Rings" as an orthography for his fictional
"elvish" languages, this system (which is both visually and
phonetically elegant) has long fascinated hackers (who tend
to be intrigued by artificial languages in general). It is
traditional for graphics printers, plotters, window systems,
and the like to support a Feanorian typeface as one of their
demo items. By extension, the term might be used for any odd
or unreadable typeface produced by a graphics device.
