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)
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)
