Happy new year!

As promised, and as a New Year gift, here's the entire collected edition of the History of Middle-earth (Chibi Version) to date: 90 sequential cartoons, saved as a PDF:

Right-click and 'Save As' to download - 6 MB PDF file

This covers the history of Arda from the Creation: including the making of the world, Melkor's rebellion, the arrival of the Elves, the war between Melkor and the Valar, and the Great Journey of the Elves to the Uttermost West.

–— Hope you enjoy what we made for you!

I'm not particularly familiar with the wider Tolkien fandom, but if anyone wants to link to this, or runs an archive site and would like to host a mirror of it, or anything like that, please go ahead. (Obviously with the usual credits, copyright disclaimers, etc etc.)

Do you mean "In the land of Tumblr where the fangirls are"?

Hmm 2

I can see it working well at Faerie - they do have art work there. But I think you'd have to join and post links to it yourself, maybe.

I could ask spiced_wine as she is one of the administrators, if you like.

Could you? I know it's not really conventional 'fic', but if there is a place for it I'm happy for it to appear there!

Image Quality

I just downloaded a copy, but I noticed the image quality was considerably lower than the images you've posted here individually. It doesn't make it unreadable, but it's a little disappointing.

Re: Image Quality

Having checked it-

The image quality is actually identical to the posted imaages. It's just that the PDF's default size magnifies them to about 150% times their proper resolution, so they look blurry. Set the PDF's scale to less than 100% and the image looks identical to the one I posted here...

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I linked this entry as part of the silwritersguild Silmarillion re-read and discussion of Ainulindale and Valaquenta. There's a section for linking fanworks, and I thought more people should see Melkor with an electric guitar. :)
