The Aniron font is a replication of the font used in the front and end credits of Peter Jackson’s “The Lord Of The Rings” trilogy. It has been created by analyzing the characters in the movie credits as well as “Lord of the Rings”. I created some missing characters, as well as the punctuation, numbers and some other characters. Also, a Cyrillic character set has been created from scratch.

The font contains the following character tables:
  • Latin alphabet (the usual)
  • Extended Western characters (accent characters like í, ä)
  • Cyrillic characters (Russian alphabet)
  • Numbers, punctuation etc.

You can use the Aniron font for headers as well as for paragraph text. Some measures have been done to ensure that it looks good and readable in both cases. The Unicode version of Aniron contains 2660 kerning pairs.
The font contains two main Unicode tables – the Western (containing accent letters) and the Cyrillic (Russian letters). The main advantage of Unicode is the possibility of using Cyrillic characters without losing the accent letters, which Western users are more likely to require. To use Cyrillic in Unicode programs (like Microsoft Word), it is sufficient to switch the keyboard layout to Russian. Then the Cyrillic character set will automatically be selected. (Pete Klassen)
