The Silmarillion • J.R.R. Tolkien

An imagined book cover I created for the unfinished The Silmarillin by Tolkien.
The commission was for inclusion in the title The Greatest Books You’ll Never Read by Bernard Richards.

The watercolour painting is my own creation and great to be able to use it for this cover, I felt it was a perfect fit, I just had to find a way to add the necessary text and combine the two in an appropriate and interesting way.
