Medieval-Style Tolkien Illustrations Offer A Whole New Perspective

t1

These incredibly detailed illustrations by Ukrainian artist Sergei Iukhimov look like they’ve been pulled right from a Medieval manuscript, but they’re actually representations of something much more recent. He’s illustrated the works of J.R.R. Tolkien in beautiful watercolors that you’ll find in the Russian language editions LOTR. I wonder how things would have looked if Peter Jackson had used these images as his inspiration.
