Very nice! I've always liked things like this, but I don't have the time or skill to do it myself.

Nice! Lovely, in fact.

Though I've always used a different rune for <wh> than the one you are.

Very attractive. The two-colour effect especially, and the larger initial letter.

Have you considered adding 'embellishments', as in medieval manuscripts: decorative borders, or perhaps little drawings commenting on (or illustrating) the text?

Isn't Tengwar supposed to be written according to the sounds?
Personally I would've written "death" and "breath" like "d-e-th" and "b-r-e-th".

Too bad your DA page is gone Beregond.
Writing Tengwar has always been a fascination of mine. Got reasonably good at it in high school using a ball-point pen. Only had the appendices as a guide. But knowledge has faded with time. Don't know if I could write any today....
