Outside LOTRO: Edel-Silmarillion

September 2, 2011

Out-of-Game

bensilbuch05There is a wonderful article on Tolkien Library about Benjamin Harff, a German student at the Academy of Arts, who reproduced an absolutely stunning version of the Silmarillion for his exam.

This work is beautiful, detailed and nothing but wonderful. Only one copy in existance and no plans to publish or make it available, it truly is unique version of the Silmarillion.

Read the full article at the Tolkien Library for the full interview with Mr. Harff and more pictures of his amazing book!

Thank you to @Brazokie for alerting us to this amazing piece of art!

    That is stunning, I am at a loss for words for its beauty and Benjamin Harff’s work of love to use his own words; “The fire”.

    “Pure inspiration is useless without skill, knowledge and hard work.”

    That is the new defining quote of my life.

    Not bad at all, the medieval monks would be proud of him.
