    Suur Tõll [Tyll the Giant] is a giant from Estonian mythology. Legend has it that he was decapitated while protecting the people of Saaremaa but promised to return from death if the people needed him.

    The legend was adapted into a short animated film in 1980, directed by Rein Raamat with art by Jüri Arrak. Shortly thereafter they also recreated the story in book form, published by Perioodika in both Estonian and Russian language editions.

    While the text in the animation is all hand-lettered, the book uses Bullion on the cover with Zhurnalnaya Roublennaya throughout the interior, for both the Estonian and Russian editions.

    (Images from the Estonian and Russian editions are shown adjacently here for easier comparison).
