- Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows of a book or website that
illustrates the letters in script. I would like to learn to write
them that way, if possible. Thank you.
There is a very good site in Polish:
but you can also have a look at The Council of Elrond
where you can find the courses and also download "Quenya Tengwar" in PDF
(first you will need to register for free and then in "My Account" you
will have acces to "Language Workbook" - "Quenya Tengwar" is just below
