Just a few weeks left until the Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth exhibition opens to the public on June 1! Today the Bodleian shared a short video about some of Tolkien's original artwork on social media, with Catherine McIlwaine and Alan Lee speaking.

(It does not appear to be on their YouTube channel as of yet).

Also, if interested, there is a talk on the evening of June 5 as a part of the exhibition: Mythopoeia: myth-creation and Middle-earth. The speakers are Marina Warner, Dimitra Fimi and Verlyn Flieger, and the panel is moderated by Professor Carolyne Larrington, Professor of Medieval European Literature, St John's College. Tickets are £4 and must be booked in advance (more information at the link above).
