Thread: Free Germanic and Runic Fonts

  1. #1

    Thumbs Up Free Germanic and Runic Fonts

    I have just downloaded this splendid “Elder Futhark” font. What do you think of it?


    How to download the fonts:

    Click once on the font you want to download. Or, right click on it and select "save target as".

    A dialog box should open that says something like:
    "You have chosen to download a file from this location "
    Select "save file to disk", and click OK.

    Browse through your hard drive and choose where to save the font; a temporary folder or your desktop is a good place. Now you need to install the font, so you can use it.

    How to extract (unzip) the file:

    When you're ready to install the fonts, find the font file you downloaded (remember where you saved it?!) and open it by double-clicking on it.
    This should start your unzipping program, (a utility that decompresses the file).

    If you don't have an unzipping program, you must download and install WinZip.

    When you double click on the font zip file, you will see a dialog box. Select "extract to folder C\..." This will unzip the file to a folder with the same name. So if your font zip file was called Garamond.zip, when extracted it will be in a folder called Garamond. Or, you can choose extract it to a folder of your choosing.
    Another way to extract the file is to highlight the font zip and press Ctrl-E to extract it. Again, you can choose to extract it to any folder you want.

    Once you have unzipped (i.e., extracted) the file, close WinZip.

    How to install the font on your computer:

    Go to Start Menu, select Control Panel, then select Fonts, then click File in the top left of the window. You'll get a drop down menu.
    Select Install New Font.
    In the window that comes up, browse your hard drive and find the font you unzipped (extracted).
    Select it and click OK.

    {Alternately, you can open the folder where you saved the font, then also open C\WINDOWS\FONTS. Make both windows small and place them beside each other (not overlapping). Then simply highlight the font, and while holding your left mouse button down, drag and drop the font from its folder into the C\WINDOWS\FONTS folder.}

    You font is now installed!

    [On older systems, you may need to restart your computer for the fonts to become available.]

    I added a lot of .ttf fonts to the c:\Windows\fonts\ folder but none of the new ones show up in photoshop, front page express or anything else. :

    It is interesting how similar some of the symbols are between Magyar Rovásírás, Germanic Runes and the Orkhon Alphabet of Mongolia. Mongolia even has algiz.

    Orkhon Alphabet, Mongolia


    Gothic Runes


    Magyar Rovásírás, Transylvania/Hungary


    Anyway, here is a "Magyar rune" font by Dávid Csaba.
    Windows - Mac

    Here are some standard "Magyar rune" fonts by Dr. Hosszú Gábor: Rovásírás.

    I hope that's the one you are looking for.
