Shire alphabet? Can't Post

Hello all!

I just skimmed the LOTR appendices and while it does include Tengwar and the Cirth (runes), I didn't see any alphabet for hobbits. Yet we know both from book and film that they write.

So my question is- does anyone know where PJ and Co found the alphabet they used in the movies? Or was it a movie invention? And if so, does anyone know where a copy of the Shire alphabet could be found online?

Thanks!

My writing and novels:

My Hobbit Fanfiction

My historical novel print and kindle version

My historical novels ebook version compatible with all ereaders

You can also find my novel at most major book retailers online (and for those outside the US who prefer a print book, you can find the print version at Book Depository). Search "Amazing Grace Amanda Longpre'" to find it.

Happy reading everyone!

Those letter styles... [In reply to] Can't Post

were created by Daniel Reeve for the movies. His fonts page is here: http://www.danielreeve.co.nz/Fonts/

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.
