Art Student Hand-Illuminates, Binds a Copy of Tolkien’s Silmarillion
German art student Benjamin Harff decided for his exam at the Academy of Arts to do something only slightly ambitious — to hand-illuminate and bind a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion. It took him six months of work. In very 21st century elvish-monk style, he hand-illuminated the text which had been printed on his home Canon inkjet printer. He worked with a binder to assemble the resulting book. (Source)
I promised myself I would never read the Silmarillion again, but this is so beautiful I would sob tears of the sweetest Valar blood if only I could hold it’s finely crafted opulence in my unworthy hands.
More pictures here, but not nearly enough to make me happy. Can I just have all the pages so I can print them out and bind them, please?

The best-selling author Kelly DiPucchio wrote a children’s book which was illustrated by Scott C, about a lovable zombie named Mortimer, who will do anything for a date for the ball of the lovers. Unfortunately, women do not seem quite receptive to his overtures. Mortimer goes to the ball and when he thinks it will end disastrous, love strikes.
there’s gotta be SOMEONE who will love this.
