dude, you sure these are Anglo-Saxon? I can read/write fluently in a few different types if runes, including A-S, and this looks more like a weird mix-up of generalized Nordic runes and video game runes.... Beautiful, but not Anglo-Saxon? Sorry if I caused any offence here, just curious as to your source :P

They are Anglo-Saxon fuþorc runes. Source: I believe it was the Cotton Otho Library, in the British Museum.

Note: The Anglo-Saxon runes, also known as futhorc (or fuþorc), extended from the Elder Futhark from 24 to between 26 and 33/34 characters. They were used from the 5th century onward, recording Old English and Old Frisian. They remained in use in Anglo-Saxon England throughout the 6th to 10th centuries, although runic script became increasingly confined to manuscript tradition as a topic of antiquarian interest after the 9th century, and it disappeared even as a learned curiosity soon after the Norman conquest.

I'm glad it doesn't have the 3D runes, this is exactly what I need, thanks. Will credit and link when I upload the pic I'm using them in.
