Alan Meeks designed the typeface Galadriel in 1975. Probably named after the mystical character from J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, Galadriel is a decorative display face. The forms of Galadriel's letters have an antique look to them, inspired by art nouveau design. They appear tall, graceful, and condensed. Lowercase letters would distract from the quirky monumentality of Galadriel, and have not been included in this typeface. Galadriel's characteristics make it the perfect choice for cards and invitations, fantasy web sites, and esoteric jewelry.

The Galadriel type has a long history, which comprises several typographic mediums. The American Type Founders (ATF) produced the ancestor of the Galadriel typeface around 1900. 70 years later, Meeks updated this forgotten lead type classic, naming it Galadriel. As such, the typeface we know today was born. Letraset originally distributed Galadriel in its dry transfer-lettering format; Linotype is pleased to present this digital update.

The typeface bears similarities to the Behrens Schrift, designed in the early 1900s by German architect Peter Behrens, as well as to the lettering of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the seminal Scottish architect.
