Pre-order your copy of Jenny Dolfen's 2017 calendar

August 22, 2016 — Submitted by Urulöké

Jenny Dolfen 2017 Calendar Cover

It's calendar season, and here is a really wonderful one from German artist Jenny Dolfen. She works in watercolors, and there is definitely a strong thread of Tolkien running through her interests. You can see more of her background and artwork at her website, www.goldseven.de.

For the next few days, pre-orders are available through her shop on etsy. The calendars (30x42cm) should be shipped around early September, and she says that all pre-orders get a few art cards (A5 size) as an extra.

I've ordered mine!

Last chance to pre-order discounted The Return of the Ring proceedings from The Tolkien Society

May 24, 2016 — Submitted by Urulöké

The Return of the Ring proceedingsThe Tolkien Society is just about to publish the proceedings of the 2012 Tolkien Society Conference in two volumes, with a lot of very interesting materials available for the first time:

The first volume focuses primarily on Tolkien’s life, examining the influence of war, philosophy, and religion on his mythology. The second volume is much more diverse, covering themes from medievalism and romanticism through to fantasy and modernity. With contributions from the likes of John Garth, Colin Duriez, Ronald Hutton, and Janet Brennan Croft, The Return of the Ring: Proceedings of the Tolkien Society Conference 2012 is essential reading for scholars and casual readers alike.

The publication date is just a few weeks away now on June 9th, and if you pre-order before then you can save £5 on the books. With all profits from the work being donated to Tolkien to the World, there is more than one good reason to support the editorial staff, the Society, and your own reading pleasure.
