Hello,
Here is a picture of some characters issued from a record booklet. If anyone can help me identify it, I would be happy. Thanks in advance.

They are Runes.

Look at the Unicode block $16A0 to $16FF (Runic).

Dwarf Runes in "The Hobbit":
After the Runes came to Britain, many local variations developed. J.R.R.Tolkien used one if these variations in his book "The Hobbit". These Runic inscriptions appear on Thror's map of Lonely Mountain. This is the document which contains your sample. The font is titled "Tolkien Dwarf Runes" and is darker than the sample but it'sa start.
