An Eagle’s View of Middle-earth–In Pictures!

Every week, our Middle-earth News reporters seek out Tolkien/Hobbit/LOTR goodness and tag their finds with their names. This week, we found so many images that this will be a predominantly picture-based “Eagle’s View of Middle-earth.” If a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m about to write the longest article of my life!


 These beautiful prop replicas of The Red Book of Westmarch come from deMiguel Replicas on Etsy. He also sells amazing replicas of Eomer’s Banishment Letter, Thror’s Map,  Wilderland Map, and five pages from the Book of Mazarbul. Shut up and take my money! (Myla)


There and Back Again: A Hobbit Collection was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and features delightfully whimsical original art by Robin Kaplan (TheGorgonist). Check out her Etsy for more monstrously charming illustrations, including a matching Hobbit poster! (Myla)


Fili carries few ostentatious trinkets or other suggestions of his royal blood, but all Dwarves place great value in fine craftsmanship and a pipe as exquisitely fashioned as his own, tall, delicately carved and capped with brass fittings, is not lightly cast aside. You can purchase this gorgeous replica from Weta! (Alice)


Tumblr user thedaywasnew made this epic scarf featuring an illustration of The Fellowship of the Ring as well as the Tree of Gondor. (Lily Milos)


This is just one pair of custom Hobbit canvas sneakers from Footprints of Color on Etsy. Be sure to check out her designs or request a custom design of your very own! (Myla)


Who is Bard the Bowman? Trevor Wheate (Longshanks), a member of the Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship, gives a comprehensive presentation of Bard the Bowman, his background, his yew bow, and the black arrow he used to slay the dragon Smaug. Trevor has given a presentation for a BTF meeting at the Brisbane Central Library on this subject. (Alice)

We recently reported on a reference to an earlier version of Tolkien’s poem The Shadow Bride performed here by  Kurt Henry with melody written by Stephen J. Altman. (Britta)


As I mentioned above, we do this post every week! If you have something to contribute, please submit it using the Got News Precious link at the bottom of the page.

  1. I would really love some of the “Attercop, Attercop” and “Riddles in the Dark” eye shadows. Along with a Red Book of Westmarch. And a Fellowship scarf…. and a pipe.
    I want everything!

      All the colors are so pretty! I’m leaning towards “Farewell, Wherever You Fare.” And those shoes!

    • I would like to try Lingered in Twilight and War of Five Armies! And of course I want Fili’s pipe!

  2. Thank you Alice, for your comment and the post on Middle-earth Network. I am sure Trevor will be most grateful as is all of us here at Brisbane Tolkien. We will have other posts coming up on a regular basis and any links you give to us will be most appreciative. There will be an article coming up soon on “Dragons” and also look out for our article and video on “Archery in Middle-earth’ that we will be producing for a release at the end of July…. Proudfoot.

  3. Red Book of Westmarch is a bit good, brilliant post as ever
