Icelandic Runic (ᛇᛋᛚᛂᚿᛋᚴᛁ ᚱᚤᛐᚢᚱᛁᚿᚿ)

Icelandic Runic was created by Alexander R. as an adaptation of the runic script for Icelandic. He created it while researching if it was possible to write any modern language in runes. He thought that most languages cannot be written in runes, until he realised that Icelandic and medieval runes hvae a lot of similar letters.

The script is based on medieval runes, although vowels from Elder Futhark were added to be used for the letters á, é, í, ó, ú and ý in order to give a unique look to as many letters as possible. The Elder Futhark rune for J was also added since the medieval runes had no rune for J.
