Angerthas script, an alphabet of Middle-Earth
The Lord of the Rings
Part I. The Fellowship of the Ring

Various Information about Tolkien's Novel
   Tolkien created the entire history and culture of the inhabitants of Middle-Earth: he made up poems, songs, superstitions, traditions, folk tales and even languages with their alphabets, as well as indications on their pronunciations. The creation of Middle-Earth is the work of a lifetime. Tolkien on its own gave birth to an entire world both dreamlike and completely believable.
   In the left-hand margins on the pages dedicated to this novel on my site, you will find:

. in the 'review' and 'info' pages: examples from the various scripts created by Tolkien for the different people he imagined.

. in the 'guide' section: Tolkien's maps of Middle-Earth, as well as beautiful watercolour paintings by illustrator Anke Katrin Eissmann.

. in the 'quotes' section: all of Tolkien's poems and songs from the novel, as well as paintings by his official illustrators, Alan Lee and John Howe.
