Map rendering by Sirielle, with Thangorodrim, compass rose and tengwar frame by Ominously. Published on-line with Ominously's permission. 

Based on on maps by J.R.R. Tolkien in HoME, Christopher Tolkien in The Silmarillion &  Karen Wynn Fonstad in The Atlas of Middle-earth,  and invaluable tips from Ominously, without whom the map would be incomplete :thanks:

Regarding the source map by JRRT - not HoME XII, but XIpages 182-185. Thanks to Demosthenes at to pointing out it's not XII:…
 Thank you for the feature, too!

Forward it at Tumblr Icon…

Note on the buildings - they are more symbols of cities and fortresses, showing their different characters than literal renderings of the actual buildings.

This rules. May the One, Who guides the hearts, hands, and feet of His First- and Second-born, and all Speaking People, keep you and all whom you love. 

(Pardon my extravagance. Am sorta wired for it.)

Masterpiece. This is digital version of Tomasz "Saso" Kowal style; his maps are also wonderful.

I love the maps by Saso! :love: It was my inspiration to make my own map in the first place, though firiends had to push me to finally do it. And to do something more than a "dry" map - with just lines for rivers and different patterns for forests and mountains etc. But I tried to do a stylized fantasy map as you see in RPG & computer games, not digitalize Saso's maps. I used tutorials by torstan, creator of the maps to GRRM's  Song of Ice and Fire. But if you are looking for beautiful maps of Middle-earth check the maps by FrancescaBaerald:

I'm listening to The Silmarillion on tape (the Martin Shaw reading), and this really helps with grasping the geography of Western Middle-earth!
