Thanks for the thread about my site (Compleat Gyde...) I am only interested in "real" Tolkien calendars - for the most part, those with artwork and illustrations - and not the multitude of movie-related calendars (with stills from same). Even so, I have been able to catalog over 190 and am on the trail of a few more.
Re the "movie calendars", I did find a website with a good catalog of same and noted it on my website. I have not visited it recently, so I do not know if it is current.
And I know a little about the Wizard Tower CD. Jim Emerson, the website and CD creator, found my calendar website and contacted me to ask permission to use the photos and information. I have no financial interest in it, and did not want anything in return for my support of his creation. So Jim sent five of the CDs to me as a thank-you. If you visit his site, you will read that the first CD includes an interview with a "premiere calendar collector". I wonder whom that would be?
Jim is working on the second in that series which will cover the first editions . . . which would seem a VERY ambitious undertaking given the number of editions and publishers, etc etc etc
(At the risk of double-posting, as I posted this message under the Calendars, Posters, and Other Artwork forum, also)
Happy July to Everyone!
I have updated my Tolkien calendar website with a few additions and the Calendar of the Month feature. That calendar is the 1976 issue illustrated by the Brothers Hildebrandt in respect to Tim Hildebrandt who passed away on 11 June. Check it all out at:
