I totally agree, I started learning tengwar when my best friend showed me
how it works, for some reason I caught on very quickly. And ever since
have been studying it I only got the font so I could make some tengwar
without having to scan or recreate it in a graphics prog.
Writing tengwar by hand is the best way, that is the only way to understand
fully, to recognise the symbols and write them without a reference. Even
my hand writing sucks, I enjoy writing tengwar. My friend and I even sat
translating a coke can's text to tengwar for the fun.
So all you new to tengwar. Get the symbols and start writing.

I humbly take my leave.
