Old Norse Runes by Fagertveit Old Norse Runes by Fagertveit
Well, there were quite some time since I sat down and made me a font from the scratch, has only happened once before, but now I'm on the move again! :D
After having made a set of cards with the Old Norse runes for personal use i scanned them and wondered what to make out of it.
This is what I went for hehe, after seeing how the Terror font is quite a popular item of my gallery (tickin' on 1600+ downloads) I thought that another font wont hurt them pageviews.

I have taken time to write a nice little Read Me that is in the zip with the font, this is giftware so read the little bastard before printin' magz and such ;)

Anyway, hope you like it, and don't be afraid to say if it need some updates or if theres something wrong with it. Should work equally good on win as on mac machines.

Enjoy!

These are not Old Norse runes, though. These are Proto-Norse runes. The Old Norse (AKA the Viking age language) used the Younger Futhark. This is the Elder Futhark.

Fageztueits? Uznozdiska? Zunor? What are these? Viking gods? (I knew Old Norse before I have seen this :D)

The translation of these runes are wrong. 'þ' is equilant to 'th', the "Y" is equilant to 'y' except when it's the last rune in a word, then it's 'R'. And I've never seen Ingwaz being used as a comma before. The usual equilant is 'ng'.

Other than that, good work.

hehe I know that it's not exacly right, but that chart is just to show how to type the characters on a keyboard (it's a computer font if you haven't noticed yet?) and there ain't no keys on the keyboard for th n' ng and such, just trying to fit em as good as possible :)

OOOOH that makes sense LOL. Glad that I read the comments before going smartass on you :) But yeah, I know ■ as TH, "Y" as Z(endR), <> as NG and Eihwaz as EI too :) Kinda weirded me out hehe. But now I've gotta download this. :)

I never liked Norse runes much but this font is technically great regardless!

Hey man I was wondering, would you be willing to turn one of my font designs in an actual font? I will pay you of course. So send me a note so we can chat about this.
