On frumsceafte Il˙uatar
by Arkadiusz Kubala
Arkadiusz Kubala, an illustrator of J.R.R. Tolkien's tales and a Tolkienian linguist from Poland presents a hand-written medieval Anglo-Saxon calligraphy of the Tolkien's Old English preamble to the Annals of Valinor. This text can be found in The Shaping of Middle-earth, pp. 284-285 (see the resources by Carl F. Hostetter). Compare the Tolkien's text with this beautiful calligraphy. Another artwork by Arkadiusz Kubala will soon be found in our gallery.
