I love the map of Middle Earth that was used for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. It has that nice, ancient feel and yet is extremely readable. When looking for maps to use for Celtic things, I'm constantly looking for things that look like this map.
There's a great hi-res version of the map that is floating around the internet. In my searches I discovered that the artist responsible for the map is Daniel Reeve [link]
I thought the map would be great as a wallpaper for my widescreen computer. But some editing needed to be done since the original was square. I wanted to keep the border that the original artist used, but now it cuts off on the sides so anyone who reads elvish will notice that it is messed up that way. I also wanted to avoid cutting off any words or objects on the top, bottom or either side. To do this I squished the map in a bit and had to remove wording and some things to make it work. I'm actually pretty happy with the way it turned out, and put enough work into editing the original piece that I feel comfortable putting this up as a wallpaper here.
Just to be clear, though. The art is not my own in any way. Rather I have just taken an incredible piece of art by Daniel Reeve that was commissioned and used for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, and edited it down to fit a widescreen computer.
