ATG Quirkies: Tolkien the Visual Artist

by | Apr 22, 2019 | 0 comments

Tolkien admirers are probably still standing in lines around the Morgan Library & Museum in New York to get a glimpse of the many treasures that are part of this exhibit.

Dust jacket design for “The Hobbit,” April 1937.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle Earth is toward the end of its run (May 12th) but if you’ll be in New York before the exhibit ends, it would be well worth checking out. The exhibit “uses a vast amount of original material to show how the beloved British author developed his iconic works of fiction. Hailed as “the most extensive public display of original Tolkien material for several generations,” the exhibition borrows from the Tolkien Archive at Oxford’s Bodleian Library, Marquette University Libraries, the Morgan, and private lenders to paint a portrait of the author’s stunning achievements…”

You’ll want to get your tickets soon.
