> Tolkien did the artwork himself before the 1st UK printing in 1937 and he is also designed the bindings of the book.

Thanks. I knew that he did the artwork, I was just curious if it had a name similar the "wilderland map" for example.

>If you are interested in seeing how he did it, then look at Findegil's definitive reference book on the subject "The Art of the Hobbit", and if you don't already have a copy, then you should remedy this as soon as possible.

I bought a copy as soon as it came out but I have not had a chance to read it yet. I will make a point of doing so in the very near future.

>I had the pleasure of looking at the original final copy of the dust-wrapper from the Professor last month and it is fantastic, made my day

Jealous!

Thank you for the response.
