Did you ever wonder about the Tengwar script adorning the title page of the Silmarillion?
I have. It’s been a little questioning prick in the nape that I know is there, but never got round to assuaging.
Someday, I told myself, I would find out exactly what it said.
Days turned into years, and the world moved on.
Finally, the answer fell into my lap.
Perhaps I might get further than I thought I would with my ambition to blog about the Silmarillion cover to cover.
The tale of the First Age when Morgoth dwelt in Middle-Earth and the Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils.
To which are appended the Downfall of Númenor and the history of the rings of power and the First Age in which these tales came to their end.
