In the early stages of his subcreation, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a number of new texts in Old English, in which he described the creation of the world in the Elder Days. This is my own calligraphic interpretation of one of these texts, which I made in 1988 as a diversion when I was enrolled in Professor Geoffrey Russom's Old English class at Brown University. Following Tolkien's own practice with his "Book of Mazarbul," I aged and discolored the document with an ink wash and a spell in the oven.
