his is a Tengwar lookalike font, AFAIK the first one of its kind.
What is Tengwar anyway?
It's an alphabet that John R. R. Tolkien devised for his trilogy "The Lord of the Rings". It is meant to be the way how the Elvish language of Quenya is written. Tengwar consists of consonants, vowels are marked by diacritic symbols (little dots and strokes). A number of digital fonts already exist for this alphabet. I tried to make a latin alphabet reminiscent of Tengwar letters.
You can find more information on the Tengwar alphabet e. g. on:
