Visually, Luxeuil Miniscule is like a real-world historical version of Tolkien's Tengwar elvish writing, which was designed with an intentionally limited visual vocuabulary (stems, which can be short or long, and boughs, which can be single or double, open or closed). This variation in simplicity is what gives it its elegance.

The above is English ("All that is gold does not glitter...") written with Tengwar.
