Hand Drawn Silmarillion

In 2009 German art student Benjamin Harff created this 400 page hand drawn Silmarillion for his exam at the Academy of Arts using a steel pen and indian ink as well as brushes and watercolour. He created the goat leather binding himself with the help of a professional bookbinder. The project took six months to complete.

The illumination of the opening page of the book, seen below took more than 70 hours to create.
