Runic Fantasy Fonts

One of my dearest pleasures is stumbling across a cool prop resource that should be getting more attention.  These fantasy fonts from Holger Göbber are a great example.  He's crafted the characters for two different fantasy language families and then produced a total of seven variants from those basic designs.  I like his take on Elven runes, but the fonts for "Lorrian Scripture" and "Alternative Elven Runes" stand out as something special. 

The fact that these fonts haven't received a lot of exposure is a shame, but it does have the benefit of avoiding the "Tengwar, again?" effect when they're used in documents and props.
