You say the website is to showcase your collections yet you have taken a lot of the book images from TolkienBooks.net - without any credit. You are also offering the super-deluxe Hobbit for sale in your store with an image that isn't your copy either. Have all the images been acquired from other websites?


Hi Deagol

The LOTR Arts Book Introduction gives credit to TolkienBooks.net:

"The images of books in this gallery are from TolkienBooks.net: An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography and various other reference websites Tolkien Books

These images will be replaced with actual photos of the books and the collection display in the near future."


I will contact Tolkien Books to see if this is sufficient.

Deagol is Tolkienbooks.net, it is Deagol's website.

Shouldn't you have contacted "Tolkien Books" first? Or are we following the Google approach to permissions/credit?

I don't understand why you didn't just photograph the actual books in your collection?

If it was my site, I'd probably lose the main banner with the Movie imagery off the front page. It is quite sluggish and glitchy, plus.... I imagine that also potentially poses some copyright issues. I guess it depends on what you are trying to achieve with the site, but I personally find unnecessary motion and panning, etc, on web pages irritating. I'd much rather have a simple, clean interface. I'd say focus on the real content, more than the fluffy whizz-bang stuff that people might only look at once.
