Egelantier shared these medieval Russian Orthodox style paintings from the Russian editions of Lord of the Rings on their tumblr page. We think they’re pretty amazing and have shared a few of them with you.
My childhood Russian edition of Lord of the Rings had the most amazing, medievally styled illustrations by Sergey Yuhimov.
I haven’t appreciated them when I was a child (I obviously wanted something more aesthetically obvious), but now I think they’re just – really badass.
