Had a flip through this one at the bookstore the other day: A Middle-earth Traveler: Sketches from Bag End to Mordor. The book is illustrated by John Howe, who worked as a production designer on the Peter Jackson films, and offers a spectacular insight into his artistic vision of Middle-earth. Would highly recommend to any Tolkien fans, regardless of whether they prefer the books, the movies, or both.

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Window shopping for Tolkien …

Look what I found at the bookshop today …

“Good stories deserve a little embellishment”, that’s what he said?

A biopic about my favourite writer is coming soon this spring. It’s Tolkien, of course. It means Professor has become a character himself… He wasn’t a saint. He was haughty, sarcastic. Almost unbearable – but stunning) So let this hero with his name appear. A hero with great power that pushed away many people when he was alive – the ability to conquer millions of hearts with just one word.

 I am your sister and not your servant,
and beyond your bounds I will go as seems good to me.
And if you begrudge me an escort,
then I will go alone.
