Art Student Hand-Illuminates, Binds a Copy of Tolkien's Silmarillion This 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. I spent a year of my life, in my youth, fancying myself some sort of modern-day monastic scribe and doing this sort of Celtic knotwork-inspired illumination and calligraphy, so I am in awe of his talent. Interview with Benjamin Harff, upcoming Tolkien illustrator and creator of the Edel-Silmarillion Gareth Branwyn Gareth Branwyn is a freelancer writer and the former Editorial Director of Maker Media.

Deutsche Tolkien Gesellschaft e.V. | Literatur. Fantasy. Fandom. Studies on the Works of J.R.R.

A shorter collection of similar writings in Finnish can be found at Kirjoituksia Tolkienin kielistä ja kirjoitusjärjestelmistä. Contents Also available is an English summary for an incomplete Finnish document I once started writing: Writing Finnish in Tengwar. Translations To my continuing amazement, some people have translated my writings into other languages. Links Just in case this page is your first contact to the study and use of Tolkien's languages and scripts, here is a basic set of links to connect you with the rest of the world. FAQs: The Elfling FAQ answers many basic questions and gives pointers to reliable sources. Basic online sources: To go straight to the good stuff, try for example Ardalambion and Amanye Tenceli.

Ted Nasmith - Sketches and Unreleased Conte de Noel : Les Lettres du Pere Noel de Tolkien Lettre d'Ibereth, elfe du Père Noëlde J.R.R. Tolkien Je suis Ilbereth. Beaucoup d'entre nous, les Elfes Verts et Rouges, avons décidé de vivre de façon permanente dans la Maison de la Falaise et d'apprendre tout sur l'art de l'empaquetage. L'idée était d'Ours Polaire : "Je veux que ce soit une idée record et aider Père Noël en sorte qu'il soit en avance et que nous puissions nous-mêmes nous amuser le jour de Noël", disait-il. Nous avons tous travailler dur et vous serez surpris d'entendre que tous les colis étaient empaquetés et numérotés samedi dernier (le 19 décembre). The Encyclopedia of Arda The Encyclopedia of Arda is a personal project - a tribute to and a celebration of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The site is evolving into an illustrated hypertext encyclopedia of Tolkien's realms and peoples. It already contains about four thousand entries, and we're constantly adding new entries and expanding existing ones. Inside the encyclopedia The Encyclopedia of Arda contains thousands of articles covering topics from J.R.R. You'll also find a selection of interactive tools, including a chronicle to help you explore Tolkien's fictional history, and calendar to translate dates and events, a lexicon of names, a glossary of old and rare words, and much more. Context and approach The content of the Encyclopedia is written in the same context as Tolkien himself used; he presented himself simply as a translator, rather than originator of the tales. About the name Arda Special thanks But the real Special Thanks, though, belong to the memory of J.R.R.

J. R. R. Tolkien Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Vous lisez un « bon article ». Après des études à Birmingham et à Oxford et l’expérience traumatisante de la Première Guerre mondiale, Tolkien devient professeur assistant (reader) de langue anglaise à l’université de Leeds en 1920, puis professeur de vieil anglais à l’université d’Oxford en 1925 et professeur de langue et de littérature anglaises en 1945, toujours à Oxford. Il prend sa retraite en 1959. Durant sa carrière universitaire, il défend l’apprentissage des langues, surtout germaniques, et bouleverse l’étude du poème anglo-saxon Beowulf avec sa conférence Beowulf : Les Monstres et les Critiques (1936). Son essai Du conte de fées (1939) est également considéré comme un texte crucial dans l’étude de ce genre littéraire. Tolkien commence à écrire pour son plaisir dans les années 1910, élaborant toute une mythologie autour de langues qu’il invente.
