A poem by Tolkien, appeared in 8th chapter of book 2 in "Lord of the Rings". I used Italic hand, and spent whole day trying not to make a spelling mistake. I think that's the 7th or 8th go at it.

It is the first paragraph of Tolkien's "The Silmarillion". I used stylised gothic hand. The flourishes - effect of being bored.

Well, I've finally started the project of which I was thinking for a long time now. This is the first few paragraphs of The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien, AinulindalŽ - The music of the Ainur, as soon as I finish next pages I'll submit them here. Written in FŽanor's Tengwar. Recently I was writing in quenya, so I had some problems in switching to English. Anyways, here it is. And this gray colour is actually silver. Damned scanner!

Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la liberta!


Let me weep over my cruel fate,
And that I long for freedom!

Calligraphy in my invented script called 'Diwata'. :)

Ink and pencil; it's challenging getting the scanner to show pencil lines properly.
