VIKING, ELDER Runes Bold Regular

Download @font-face

Author's note

VIKING is a false-historical font evolving from Elder Futhark Runes. This runic typeface is based upon the ancient Germanic symbols later adapted by the Goths, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, The Third Reich, and within Fantasy genera, depicted as Dwarven Runes.

ELDER VIKING is almost an exact interpretation of Elder Futhark plus a few extra characters corresponding as a best fit to the basic 26 upper-case Latin characters.

MIDDLE VIKING is the second generation evolution Rune based upon Elder Futhark. Designed as a semi-cryptic, visually interesting type but intended to be almost-readable as a Latin equivalent (unlike ELDER VIKING), MIDDLE VIKING contains numeric runes and basic punctuation.

YOUNGER VIKING is the third generation rune type which is a fully modern interpretation of Elder Futhark. YOUNGER VIKING, a.k.a. "SPACE VIKING" contains all upper and lower-case fonts as well as numbers and various punctuation.
