The poem Namárië by J.R.R. Tolkien in the original Quenya, written in Tengwar script. Image created by Jacob McClenny using the font Tengwar Annatar created by Johan Winge. Tengwar Annatar is freeware and can be downloaded at http://home.student.uu.se/ (Wikipedia)

The Library, of course, has a huge amount of Tolkienian material…but you knew that already.
