LotR Pinterest RoundupSeptember 05, 2012
In case you haven't heard of it already, Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site. I started off by using to bookmark my favorite blog posts, but since it is a social media site and I get to see all the pins by my online friends, and half of my boards have turned into collections of "MUST PIN ALL THE PRETTY PICTURES, MUAHAHAHA!"
Speaking of said chemistry course, I'm going to be attending a four hour lecture this evening, so today's blog post will, of necessity, be quick and short. I've decided to do a Pinterest Roundup of some of my favorite LotR-themed pins! When possible I'm linking to the original site.
You can see my board here, and if you pin any awesome LotR-themed pictures that you think I would enjoy, tag me with @Shaylynn. (Hopefully that will tag me, you should see a thumbnail of my avatar, the little fairy named Shea). Or, enter your own Lord of the Rings Pinterest boards into the linky, and I'll follow it!

German art student Benjamin Harff decided for his exam at the Academy of Arts to do something only slightly ambitious — to hand-illuminate and bind a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion. It took him six months of work. In very 21st century elvish-monk style, he hand-illuminated the text which had been printed on his home Canon inkjet printer. He worked with a binder to assemble the resulting book.
OK, I haven't had a time to look into this too closely-- I've only found a few images from this piece and a handful of text written in German, which I am rubbish at translating, but I need you to pause what you're doing for just a moment and let me go bounce off walls and do a happy dance! This is amazing! Celtic knotwork, illuminated manuscripts, calligraphy, The Silmarillion... what better combination can you get? You'll probably see more about this project as I find more information!

That's all for now, folks, wish me luck at my class and enjoy these pines!
