Russian Medievalist Tolkien

Another art post! I love finding stuff like this. One of the Russian versions of Lord of the Rings was illustrated by Sergey Yuhimov (or Sergei Iukhimov). Looking more like something I studied in my Art History classes in college, I would love to see an English version with these illustrations.

Oh man. There are so many more pictures I would have liked to add. Be sure to visit this blog, this article, and this page (in Russian, but all you really need to do is look at the pictures right?) for even more of Yuhimov’s Lord of the Rings illustrations.
