Beauty in a Book

This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen, and if it is ever published, I want one for Christmas!
A German art student has created an edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Sillmarillion–illuminated like a medieval manuscript.
Artist Benjamin Harff created his book as his exam project for a German Academy of Art. The project took him a year. You can read an interview with the artist, and see more of his fantastic designs at The Tolkien Library.
Posted by Nancy, who has not actually read The Silmarillion, but loves The Hobbit.
