Russian Medievalist Tolkien

Here is an absolutely gorgeous blog by Grimmella. I first met Grimmella in The Hobbit Read-Along. Here she gathers together some of the pictures from a Russian edition of The Hobbit. They really do look like plates from a medieval Bible. It makes me want to get my copy of The Hobbit bound in leather.

Another art post! I love finding stuff like this. One of the Russian versions of Lord of the Rings was illustrated by Sergey Yuhimov (or Sergei Iukhimov). Looking more like something I studied in my Art History classes in college, I would love to see an English version with these illustrations.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
