The Road Goes Ever On – Tolkien Typography

Tolkien’s Middle-earth is so vast that it can be difficult to name a favourite character, story, or poem. However, one of my absolute favourite poems is, among many others, Bilbo’s walking song. There are in fact three different versions, and I’m thinking of getting one particular version tattooed somewhere on my body. I thought about designing it myself so began to experiment with typography. This version is a first attempt so it is not only imperfect, but certainly not the version I’ll get tattoed.
