I present my final project for my typography and books arts class from last semester! I produced an edition of 5 books of a collection of songs and poems from JRR Tolkien’s Legendarium. I designed each of the illuminated letters, carved them out of linoleum blocks, and printed them on a platinum hand press. The text of the titles page was also hand set and printed (I ran out of time to hand set the rest.) The blue detailing I did with watercolors. I bound them in a simple case binding with a really pretty blue paper inside the cover.
These are the most exciting pages that I wanted to share.
OH MY GOD
