A while ago, Middle-earth News introduced Jian Guo’s beautiful (digital) stained glass art[3]. Now, Guo’s amazing art work will adorn an upcoming Chinese translation of The Lord of the Rings. As part of a competition held by WenJing Publishing, Guo incorporated Mandarin characters into his monochromatic illustrations.

imageJian Guo is a freelance illustrator from the People’s Republic of China and was introduced to Tolkien’s Legendarium through Peter Jackson’s LOTR trilogy. Nowadays, he re-reads LOTR every two years, each time he’ll be so immersed in Middle-earth he’ll “keep reading throughout the whole night[4]“.  Guo adopted this glass painting style for his interpretation of Middle-earth to tell a story that ” was endowed with a sense of religious magnificence “.

You can see more of Jian Guo’s beautiful art at his DeviantArt portfolio[5], including Harry Potter and World of Warcraft inspired art.

image Author: Maria Messer[15] When Maria watched the Fellowship the very first time in cinemas, she fell hopelessly in love with Tolkien’s work. Up to the point where she lost herself in Middle Earth entirely. When not occupied with studying, she likes to draw, hoard books, travel around (if her bank account allows it), and pretending to be a hobbit that is attending Hogwarts in order to become a jedi knight.
