Tolkien which were published in a series of six Calendarsfrom to , with a gap in The first of these Calendars was published in America by Ballantine Books, and whilethis contained the five paintings that were published in The Hobbit it also included somehitherto unknown pictures to illustrate The Lord of the Rings in this book nos.
In began the series of Calendars published by George Allen and Unwin; and thisone also was prepared during my fathers lifetime. After my fathers death Mr Rayner Unwin, Chairman of Allen and Unwin, proposed tome that we should continue the series of Calendars, and we collaborated closely in theselection and presentation of pictures for those of Riddett was invited to colour the pen and inkpictures; and since then these coloured versions have appeared elsewhere. The nature of some of these pictures,and most especially the burnt leaves from the Book of Mazarbul 23 , seemed to call foran explanatory comment, and to this Calendar and the subsequent ones I contributednotes, some of which reappear in this book.
The Silmarillion Calendar was mainly illustrated by paintings and drawings donein the late s, when The Silmarillion was still young only two of these, 31 and 37,had appeared previously , and the drawings were coloured by Mr Riddett Alsoincluded were three examples of Elvish script, and the heraldic devices borne byfigures of the First Age, the Age of The Silmarillion.
Tolkien Calendar , the last of the series, was also largely composed ofpreviously unpublished paintings and designs, and included four further illustrations toThe Hobbit 3, 11, 13, 18, the first of these coloured by Mr Riddett , together with acoloured version of The Hall at Bag-End It showed examples of formal oremblematic dragons, trees, and flowers, presented in decorative arrangements that insome cases combine elements from widely separated times.
As I have said, this book was conceived as a collection of all the pictures that ap-pearedin the six Calendars; but various considerations led us somewhat to extend its scope.
Inthe first place, it seemed desirable to include the original pen and ink illustrationspublished in The Hobbit, facing the coloured versions that Mr Riddett made for theCalendars 2, 7, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20 ; and this naturally led to the in-clusion of theoriginals of the unpublished pictures coloured by Mr Riddett - these originals 3, here appearing for the first time.
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.

He could present a version of "The Silmarillion" he personally deemed printable but that would never live up to expectations set by fans; hide the contents of his father's brilliant-yet-incomplete manuscripts from the world indefinitely; or release their unedited contents to an audience that, at the time, would be largely uninterested in wading through it all.
Christopher Tolkien made a tough choice that nonetheless resulted in more of his father's brilliant work reaching the public eye. Fans are certainly allowed their opinions about the editorial impact on the posthumous works, but someone was inevitably going to call those shots — and it might as well be someone raised by J.
Tolkien himself. No offense to fans of the movies, but the three-part "Hobbit" adaptation sort of proved Christopher right. It's pretty uncontroversial to say that they didn't live up to the highs of Jackson's earlier "Lord of the Rings" adaptations, and they certainly played it pretty loose in terms of sticking to canon Hi Tauriel, nice to meet you for the first time ever. This well-researched article by Robin Parrish at ScreenRant explains the motives behind the expansion of "The Hobbit" to three movies — "because money," essentially — and why we're not likely to see a feature film adaptation of "The Silmarillion" any time soon — "also because money," basically.
There was a legal battle between the Tolkien estate and Warner Brothers that ended not-too-long-ago, and unless Christopher changes his mind about the movie adaptations he's not likely to work out another movie deal.
Things could change when Christopher passes away or cedes control of the estate to another family member, but consider this also: Movies don't have that luxury. That wouldn't necessarily stop a studio from trying If I had to do it, I'd take one or more prominent tales from the book, jettison the rest and hold on to the title for brand recognition but it's another hurdle nonetheless.
On the other hand, video games based on Middle-earth are right up Warner Brothers' alley. Shadow of Mordor" received rave reviews, won Game of the Year awards and surely made a pretty profit for Warner's game division — hence the new sequel, "Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
Both games are set between "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" and, as they're Warner products, they draw heavily on the aesthetics of Peter Jackson's films. Someone who's well-acquainted with the films should feel right at home…. For the uninitiated, there's this character named Shelob who appears in the "Lord of the Rings" — I'll say she's a big, evil spider and leave it at that.
See if you can figure out who Shelob is in this trailer for "Shadow of War":.
If you said "the giant spider," you'd only be half-right. Shelob is also, for some reason, depicted as a humanoid woman in a black cocktail dress. Now, if you have to ask "why," I'll point you in the direction of "Bloodrayne" or any cringe-worthy game like it. Big-budget games objectify female characters all too often — see "because money" crossed with "unsubtle misogyny" — but in the case of a game set in Middle-earth, you'd think the creators would settle for a scantily-clad Elf or something.
Instead, they've gone and sexed-up a giant man-eating spider. A representative for the game's team has provided their canonical justification for how Shelob can take the form of a humanoid woman Whatever you personally think of decisions to increase the action or sex-appeal of Middle-earth, they do seem pretty set against J. Tolkien's intentions.
If you're holding out hope for more big adaptations 1 or additions to Middle-earth lore, you're essentially waiting for the day that the interests of large media corporations and the Tolkien estate align — "because money again," in other words. So, barring any well-hidden manuscripts or seismic changes in the relationship between the Tolkien estate and enterprising film studios, the lore of Middle-earth is somewhat settled.
Even if the flow of stories set in Middle-earth comes to a complete halt, "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" will continue to influence fantasy and pop-culture for decades to come. Future generations will undoubtedly find new correspondences between Tolkien's works and the world they live in.
Frodo lived, lives now and will outlive us.
It's technically unfinished, it both inspired and was eclipsed by the Peter Jackson films and few can agree on its overall quality. Nonetheless, I've tried to do it some small justice by selecting its incredible poster as the header art for this article, thereby sparing you a large picture of Elijah Wood or Martin Freeman.
