I should have written... 'the only artist alive to have met Tolkien'... but the part on purchasing come directly from Harper Collins and guess that to be correct.

Beren posted an interesting article on Cor Blok illustrating the 2011 HarperCollins Calendar on his site.

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... alendar_2011_Cor_Blok.php

I left a comment disagreeing with one of the sentences in the post

"Cor Blok is the only artist ever to have met J.R.R. Tolkien, and the only artist Tolkien admired enough to purchase some of his work."

I think you may doing a disservice here to Pauline Baynes, she certainly met Tolkien and he hugely admired her work, though I am not sure if he ever purchased any, he did ask for a permanent loan of the artwork on the 1963 Deluxe Edition Slipcase.


Does anyone know if Tolkien ever bought, rather than was freely given, Pauline Baynes original artwork?

Don't know why, but I read the first post that I made in this thread. It was 4 June 2006 and these boards had just been restarted by Jeremy (our great gratitude to you!) At that time, I had catalogued 190 calendars. Three and a half years later, the 2010 issues have brought that total to 320. Thanks to everyone who humors my obsession and has helped me find (and collect most of) them.

Away from The Green Hill Country,
