    This is one of those things I've wanted to get around to printing and weathering for display, but the copy I have is pretty low res. I used the search but only came up with a thread on how to weather the doc once printed, no actual source for the text. Any pointers on finding it?

    Just saw this thread and had forgotten that I had made an attempt at Isildur's Account awhile back so I thought I would post an image of it. Still needs a little work.

    I used the wording from the Fellowship of the Ring rather than the words spoken by Gandalf in the film which are a paraphrasing of the written account. I used screen shots to get the layout and a dark brown ink to simulate aged ink writing. Then printed on a medium weight parchment type paper.

    This is the prototype I made on 11 x 17 paper. The actual prop is more like 15 x 20, its pretty big judging from screen shots.

    Looks great printed. I have been meaning to make more pages. What font did you use?

    Great work.

    Also was wanting to do Bilbo's contract with the Dwarves.

    You know I don't remember. I did have to modify it to get it to be more accurate, but I can't for the life of me remember what I used as the base font.

    Just to be clear, the image I posted is my own original version of the account...not a printed version of PhoenixVader's image.

    Here's a really rough proto of a Bilbo contract letter I came up with based on Tolkien's version of the letter and the movie trailer showing Bilbo jumping over a fence trailing a longish letter behind him.

    (Sorry for hijacking the thread)

    Hello Thomas

    No, it's just something I put together myself after seeing Tolkien's version of the letter.
