The script known as the Tengwar

Tengwar of Rúmil
Fëanorian Tengwar

Fëanor's Tengwar were largely of his own invention, but were inspired, at least to some extent, by the work of Rúmil.

A name used of the Elvish script, as seen for example on the frontispiece of The Lord of the Rings, which was devised by Fëanor himself. These characters are also, and more usually, known as the Tengwar.
