Then I envy you for that friendship. Although I have only had the pleasure of conversing with him via email, it has been most enjoyable. He is a very talented gentleman and I wish him continued success (especially as we MUST have more calendars! Sorry, a madness took me, but it has passed!)

Well I called to the states and can say you are absolutely correct!
Here is the link to the info. I also opened a giveaway where you can win a Deluxe Edition of the Children of Hurin. I was promised it will be first impressions!

Hrmm... that looks more like a cottage than a hobbit hole. Though, that may not be what they were going for in this case. It certainly looks like something that belongs in Hobbiton though. I'm not sure you could pull something like that off without it resembling something in Jackon's movie version of Hobbiton -- since he had many different types of structures with different architectural designs in stone and wood that can be comparable.

"Asked to design a fitting repository for a client’s valuable collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts, architect Peter Archer went to the source—the fantasy novels that describe the abodes of the diminutive Hobbits.

“I came back my client and said, ‘I’m not going to make this look like Hollywood,’” Archer recalled, choosing to focus instead on a finely-crafted structure embodying a sense of history and tradition."

This is an interesting idea, but a bit to much like the film's for my liking, what do you think?

I am not a calendar-collector, but the artist is a friend of mine.
