The Fenlon Style

As an illustrator, Fenlon is especially known for his maps of Middle-earth. These were a large-scale map of the continent of Middle-earth (first released in 1982 as An Artist's Interpretation of Middle Earth) and several smaller-scale maps of different regions of Middle-earth (most of whom were printed in Northwestern Middle-earth Map Set). The smaller-scale maps were often included as separate color fold-outs with the MERP 1st Ed. modules. With MERP 2nd Ed., no new maps were released.

Fenlon's maps have continued to have an explicit influence on later Middle-earth gaming cartographers (e.g., Thomas Morwinsky and Sampsa Rydman), and his continental map has been discussed and revised in the magazines Other Hands and Other Minds.[1]

The characteristical maps of Fenlon have even created an expression known as 'Fenlon Style maps'. In January 2008, the Cartographer's Annual released a Pete Fenlon style pack for use with ProFantasy Software cartography tools.[2]
