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.
