The Children of Hurin

This picture gives the composition of the Children of Húrin (CoH), a story written by the world popular fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien but never published during the lifetime of the author.  The story was completed and released in 2007 by Christopher Tolkien in the form of a novel. This novel come from several sources : Unfinished Tales (1980) and The History of Middle Earth (HoMe), a 12-volume series of books published during the period 1983-1996 and presenting the genesis and the development of the Silmarillion. 

To draw this picture, I searched the identical character strings (15 words length) between CoH and its sources (UT and HoMe). One 4*4 pixels square is equivalent to a word and the colormap is associated with a HoMe volume (1-5, 9-12) and UT. Each rectangle represents a chapter.
