In the second place, a collection of all the pictures from the Calendars necessarilyconstitutes a fairly complete record of my fathers published work since the majority ofthem first appeared in the Calendars, while the Calendars included almost everythingthat had been published previously - the chief exception being the illustrations of TheFather Christmas Letters. I have therefore more nearly approached completeness bythe inclusion of a few things that did not appear in the Calendars: The illustrations of TheFather Christmas Letters have not been repeated, with the exception of the pictureof the Polar Bear fallen to the foot of the stairs in Father Christmas house 39 , whichwas used in the Calendar.
These enlargements of scope are however very minor. The book remains closely relatedto the Calendars, which were limited with a few exceptions among the designs in thatof to pictures illustrating The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and TheSilmarillion; and the range of my fathers pictorial art, especially that of his earlieryears, is by no means fully represented here.

The drawing of the Doors of Durin above is reproduced from the same chapter of TheFellowship of the Ring, where the words on the arch were thus translated by Gandalf: The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter. I, Narvi, made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs.
It was only when Gandalf perceived that pedomellon a minno should be translated Say "Friend" and enter, and uttered the wordMellon, that the Doors opened. Leaves from the Book of Mazarbul It had beenslashed and stabbed and partly burned, and it was so stained with black and other darkmarks like old blood that little of it could be read. These facsimile pages werepublished in The Lord of the Rings Calendar , accompanied by the following noteon their interpretation: This page of the Book of Mazarbul exemplifies the late form of the Angerthas, calledthe usage of Erebor.
This use would be expected in a kind of diary, written, hastily andwithout attempt at calligraphy or meticulous consistency of spelling, by Dwarvescoming from Dale. Almost all the runes can be interpreted by reference to the section onthe Cirth in Appendix E to The Lord of the Rings, where also the modifications of theAngerthas Moria made by the Dwarves of Erebor are briefly described. In writing the Common Speech the Dwarves tended to blend its customaryspelling with certain phonetic usages: Inrepresentation of this, it will be found that the spelling here is not on the basis of onerunic sign for each Modern English letter; for example, the word chamber in line 13 isspelt with only five runes, there being a rune for ch and a rune for mb.
In the transcript that follows these features are not indicated. It may be noted that theword the is represented by a short vertical stroke; the word of by the rune for v; and often the word is by the rune for Z. There are also single signs for ai, ay; ea; ew; oa;ou, ow. The rune in the top right-hand corner is the numeral 3.
It is possible to make out a little more of the text than Gandalf was ableto do in the Cham-ber of Mazarbul. Floi was killed by an arr4 ow.
He slew the great chiefta in Floi5 under grass near Mirrormer e. Durins Axe. Gandalf paused and set a few leaves aside. There are several pages of the same sort,rather hastily written and much damaged, he said; but I can make little of them in thislight. Now there must be a number of leaves missing, because they begin to benumbered five, the fifth year of the colony, I suppose. Let me see!
No, they are too cutand stained; I cannot read them. We might do better in the sunlight. Here issomething: That would be Oris hand, said Gimli, looking over the wizards arm.
He could writewell and speedily, and often used the Elvish characters.
I fear he had ill tidings to record in a fair hand, said Gandalf. This page is written in the later or Westron convention, in its northern variety, in theapplication of the Elvish signs to the Com-mon Western Speech.
The script can beinterpreted from the information given in Appendix E to The Lord of the Rings; but thefollowing points may be noted. The vowels are expressed not by tehtar but by separateletters, a, e, o, u being represented by the tengwar 24, 35, 23, 22 respectively see thetable in The Lord of the Rings, Appendix E , and i by an i undotted or with an acutestroke above.
For y, as in many line 9, a j is used, and for w both tengwar 22 and 25; butthe diph-thongs ou, ow as in sorrow line 3, dou b t line 13 and ew as in slew line 9 are expressed by a curl over the first element, and ay as in day line 4 by two dots overthe a-letter, e is often indicated as in alone line 6, Silverlode line 10 by a dot placedunder the preceding letter.
A bar over a consonant is used to show that it is preceded by a nasal, as in went line 6;and a double consonant may be expressed by a bar beneath the latter, as in barred line For double l tengwa 28 is used. The runic figure at the bottom of the page is the numeral 5. The last page of the Book of Mazarbul. The runes employed are the same as those onthe first of these facsimiles, though the hand is different and the shapes differ in detail.
The last line is in the same Elvish alphabet as that used on the second page. We still ho Out of the Gates they ran and sprang down the huge and age-wornsteps, the threshold of Moria. There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn theirleaves fall not, but turn to gold.
Not till the spring comes and the new green opens dothey fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the woodis golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees issmooth and grey. This reproduction is as published in The J.

The illustration of Orthanc, the tower of Isengard, is one of several differentconceptions sketched by J. A peak and isle of rock itwas, black and gleaming hard: The unfinished picture of Minas Tirith is entitled Stanburg in Feanorian Elvish letters,and Stanburg and Steinborg in Roman letters only the latter visible in thereproduction. Shelobs LairThis sketch was published but with less of the manuscript page shown in The Lord ofthe Rings Calendar , together with the following note: In this draft Gollum hadalready disappeared at this point in the story.
DunharrowThe original of this picture in crayon bears a note on the back: No longer fits story. Itwas published in The Lord of the Rings Calendar , accompanied by the followingnote: This picture of the Firienfeld and the climbing road marked at each angle by the carvedPukel-men was done at a time when the conception of the Dark Door leading to thePaths of the Dead was somewhat different from the description in the published work.
There it is said: Dividing the upland into two there marched a double line of unshapedstanding stones that dwindled into the dusk and vanished in the trees. Those who daredto follow that road came soon to the black Dimholt under Dwimorberg, and the menaceof the pillar of stone, and the yawning shadow of the forbidden door. In the picture there is no sign of thedark wood the Dimholt , or the pillar of stone; it seems that the Dark Door lies in thecleft at the end of the double line of stones across the Firienfeld.
In the original the tongueof flame at the cone of the mountain is coloured red, and beneath the words visible inthe reproduc-tion is written Mt Doom from the North.
In this sketch is seen the longsloping causeway that led up on to the Mountains eastern side, carrying Saurons Roadfrom Barad-dur up to the dark entrance of the Sammath Naur, the Chambers of Fire. The painting shows a door on the eastern side of the fortress with Mount Doom to thewestward. It was published in The J. Tolkien Calendars and , and againin The Lord of the Rings Calendar in a slightly enlarged and truncatedreproduction together with the sketch of Orodruin as an inset.
TaniquetilThis watercolour dates in all probability from the same period as the otherSilmarillion paintings. Tolkien Calendar , andagain in The Silmarillion Calendar Taniquetil, called also Oiolosse: In theforeground is one of the white swan-ships of the Telerin Elves who dwelt on the coastof Aman.

The original, likeno. To the left are Ered Wethrin, the Mountains of Shadow, and to the rightthe western edge of Dorthonion Taur-nu-Fuin ; beyond lies the wide plain of Ard-galen, called after its devastation Anfauglith, and on the far northern horizon is the lineof Ered Engrin, the Iron Mountains, with smoke hanging over Thangorodrim. Tol Sirion coloured Mirkwood and Beleg finds Gwindor in Taur-nu-Fuin entitled Fangorn Forest The black and white picture of Mirkwood was published in the first impression of TheHobbit, in Chapter 8, Flies and Spiders, though intended to be the endpaper ; theoriginal was given by J.
Tolkien to a friend and cannot now be traced. The painting on the opposite page appeared first in The J. Tolkien Calendar ,and an enlargement of the central area of the picture in The Lord of the Rings Calendar, in both Calendars captioned Fangorn Forest, as in the title inscription, in thehand of the artist, on the painting itself.
In The Silmarillion Calendar the samereproduction as in was used, but this time captioned Beleg finds Gwindor in Taur-nu-Fuin. For me, the father of Fantasy, J. He is considered as the author of modern Fantasy and after him, many other just came and went. Tolkien took Fantasy to another level which is very difficult to achieve for any writer.
The strange thing is, this man never cared to publish his works.
It was his third son Christopher Tolkien, who assembled the work of his father and published it. Christopher then made the maps for the book and did some other work. This book came the most sold Fantasy book series. The book contained pages when combined with the books in series and still it never bored. You should try the awesomeness too. The lord of magic created 9 rings for each of the species in the Middle-Earth including men.
All of these rings were powerful and one of them was the most powerful and it ruled them all.
The ring made him mad and after all these years, the ring kept moving in different possessions. After the war of the five kings, it became the possession of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit. He never wanted to leave the ring but after being convinced by the wizard Gandalf, he gives over the ring to Frodo, his nephew.
Frodo is then assigned the task of traveling to the Middle Earth and destroy the ring. So, Frodo, with his 3 friends including Sam, begins this perilous journey on foot. On the way, Frodo and the company come across many dangers. The most dangerous of the all were the Dark Riders who cannot be killed and their task is to kill the ring bearer. Helped by the Wizard Gandalf, and the Elves, Frodo reaches the Elf Kingdom and there he finds a new team to help him on the journey.
The dwarfs, men, and the elves make a team to help Frodo on this dangerous expedition. A lot of other things happen on their way which cannot be explained in this short summary. Frodo, after going through all these dangers and troubles, finally destroys the Ring and comes home to find a happy life.
The book is so long that it is impossible to explain in this short summary. Read it yourself! Lord of the Rings is the greatest Fantasy adventure ever written. After the books, the Hollywood got its best movie series based on the Lord of the Rings directed by Peter Jackson. The movies also became all-time hits just like the books. Lord of the Rings movies is one of the highest rated movies in the history of Hollywood. And all this because of the genius of this one man, J.
R Tolkien. Tolkien changed the face of literature when was done writing this fabulous book series. Also, he developed his own language spoken by the strange creatures in the Middle-Earth.
