A reissue of 'Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien' (1979), primarily a collection of the illustrations reproduced in the series of six Tolkien calendars issued between 1973 and 1979. Many of the pictures were coloured specifically for the calendars and are now produced here in both the coloured and original un-coloured state. This is an almost complete record of J. R. R. Tolkien's published artwork for which Christopher Tolkien has written both a foreword and detailed notes for each picture.
