Tolkien’s Published Art: A Revised List

July 11, 2018

The two books by Catherine McIlwaine issued in conjunction with the current Tolkien exhibition at the Bodleian Library, Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth and Tolkien Treasures, contain previously unpublished reproductions of Tolkien’s art, other reproductions not previously published in colour, and enlarged details which reveal intricate features of some of Tolkien’s paintings and drawings. Rather than try to indicate in our online Addenda and Corrigenda where these new reproductions would be inserted into our existing list of Tolkien’s published art, in the second volume of our J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Reader’s Guide (2nd edn. 2017), we have made a new, revised version of the list and posted it on our website.

In the process, we took the opportunity to correct a few errors of formatting and to emend some inconsistencies of form, presentation, and classification, as well as our introductory note.

We are also compiling a list of pages, or parts of pages, of Tolkien’s literary manuscripts and typescripts which have been reproduced in various sources.

    Thank you for the update C&W.

    Do you happen to have an unpublished list regarding Tolkien’s art?

      If you mean, a list of unpublished art by Tolkien, then no, we don’t have such a list.

        I should have read that comment back, thank you, yes I meant a list of Tolkien’s unpublished art.

        Again many thanks for the update.
