Atlas of Tolkien
Atlas of Tolkien | David Day
27 posts | 8 read | 20 to read
J. R. R. Tolkien s fictional universe is as vast as the human imagination, so an atlas is a helpful tool to get around. Consider this book your navigational guide to Middle-earth and the Undying Lands. Maps, images, and vivid descriptions in full color create an enchanting reference to all the fantastical places and creatures that sprung from Tolkien s mind. The deluxe, heat-burnished cover makes this a charming addition to your Tolkien library. This work is unofficial and is not authorized by the Tolkien Estate or HarperCollins Publishers."

So the Tolkien Illustrated Atlas is absolutely gorgeous, full of facts about middle earth and the creatures that live there. And my dragon bookmark matches the cover dragon! So it is a beautiful win for me.

Mehso-so

If I hadn‘t already read more than halfway through Christopher Tolkien‘s Histories of Middle Earth, I might have enjoyed this more...but because I did, this seemed a bit off and repetitive in parts, and very oversimplified in others.

I did enjoy the brief overviews and artist renderings though.

Luminessa Nice! My dad would love it. 🙂 11mo
JazzFeathers Should l get it? Sounds really average... but the illustrations you posted... 😍 11mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I‘d say it‘s worth flipping through at the library or bookstore to gaze at the pictures... but as far as exciting content, no I wouldn‘t buy it now. I‘ll give you a great example, although all the ages and battles are listed...the maker of the gems is never mentioned by name, your favorite character, and the whole concept of the curse of the elves is not mentioned once! 11mo

Here‘s a good example @JazzFeathers The story tidbit is very short and simplified, so after reading the Silmarillion it‘s definitely not much for Tolkien purists I‘m sure, but for me since I‘ve already read the details, it‘s enough of a reminder... and pictures done by various artists i‘m finding interesting.

JazzFeathers Well, now l'm considering getting it for the illustrations too 😍 11mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers Honestly that‘s why I picked it up, totally a splurge purchase.... but I liked the pictures. 11mo

It looks like this is the right time to read this brief overview of the world, with great artwork from various sources. I actually feel grounded enough in this world from reading with the #YearOfTolkien group to appreciate all the ”ages”.

Up next for me! I‘m going to peruse this book and it‘s stunning artwork as I continue to work my way through The Letters From Father Christmas through this holiday season 😊

wordslinger42 I got this one for my mom & it really is so beautiful! I have the Tolkien Dictionary also and recently found out that the author has done three other Tolkien books! 11mo
Texreader Oh this would be perfect for my son who is delving into the books for the first time. He just finished Fellowship and wants to create the world himself. 11mo
JazzFeathers I'm very curious to hear what you think of it. I've heard many Tolkien's fan being very critical of David Day 🤔 11mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers Yes, I‘ve heard that too...the story‘s themselves are brushed over lightly in this one, it‘s the collected artwork I was most interested in. 11mo

Day 3 of #septemberlibrary17 is favourite fictional world! Mine is without a doubt Tolkien's world 😍 Middle Earth and every thing in it. Saw the movies when I was only 10 years old and loved it ever since.

Our family celebrated Christmas a bit early this year because my sister @CaitMobley and her family will be out of town. These were two gifts I received from my mom. They are leather bound 😍 Now I feel like I can finally tackle Tolkein...thanks to @Ambrosnazzy who originally posted about these, as they were quickly added to my Christmas list! #booksfromliberty
