Tolkien nostalgia, kind of
From Brian Sibley’s blog (Sibley is a specialist on twentieth-century popular culture, a frequent guest on and writer for the BBC, and the author of the three Hobbit movie guides): News about an auction of Tolkien-related art: the original cover designs for the 1965 U.S. editions of the LOTR trilogy. An interesting article on how those images were designed and how Tolkien felt about them. It caught my attention because these are the editions of the books I own — my mom bought me The Hobbit at a rummage sale sometime in the 1970s and I got the LOTR books from The Physicist in the 1990s. Considering how Tolkien felt about them, those images will be sold for a pretty penny!
