Handwriting by Dewfooter Handwriting by Dewfooter
My handwriting, with the first of the Anglo-Saxon runepoems written out.

"Feoh
Wealth is a comfort to all men equally
yet each man shall share much
if he will cast his lot with the Lord"

O.k., so the translation is a loose one and I'm still working on the proper translation of "domes hleotan*", but I'll post is as soon as I have a better idea. I just like this one right now. ;)

(Doom: judgement-not neccessarily condemnation!- and hleotan: cast lots...or rune-staves?)

You are so right! Like I said, it appears it is a lost art and people use to take such pride in their handwriting! You are so welcome!

I love this kind of hand writing. It is the kind of writing that seems to dance on the page as you read it. Very nice!

That is incredible.

So are runes a hobby of yours, or did you have to learn them for something?

Runes are a serious study of mine and I write with them. Why should the whole world write Roman letters and in English?. Since I'm Anglo-Saxon and live in Frisia, I thought I might as well take em up. ;)

I don't write runes, but I have always loved pushing my handwriting to a more artistic level. I started to take up shorthand because of how fluid it is to write, but I didn't like how you lose precision of information for the sake of speed, so I ended up memorizing Quikscript. You can write anything down with an alphabet that flows almost as well as cursive and still cuts down on time and excessive motions. My husband says it looks like Elvish, haha!

Thanks for sharing!
