Tengwar New Light and Tengwar New Bold

This project is a kind of playing with typography.

J.R.R. Tolkien created new race - Elves with their language, culture and stylish alphabet. But did you ever imagine that the Elves evolve to present time ? Would they have their own Helvetica ?  How their „Hengwar” typeface would develop ?
I made two modern elvish „Tengwar” typfaces (Tengwar New Light and Tengwar New Bold).
