The Tolkien Calendar 2016 was the official Tolkien calendar published by HarperCollins on 30 July 2015. It features art by Tove Jansson based on The Hobbit.

[edit] From the publisher

The Official Tolkien Calendar 2016 features illustrations from renowned artist, Tove Jansson, creator of The Moomins.

Jansson illustrated The Hobbit in 1961 for the Swedish and Finnish editions, creating a dozen enchanting full page drawings plus many smaller vignette pieces. Never before published in an English-language edition, the 2016 calendar contains all twelve of these illustrations, many of the vignettes, and a full-colour centrefold featuring her dramatic cover painting of Smaug attacking the Dwarves. The calendar is introduced by Tolkien expert and author Brian Sibley, who corresponded with the artist and provides insightful commentary regarding the genesis of the illustrations and Jansson’s tireless work continuing to build the world of The Moomins.

The Official Tolkien Calendar has been an established publishing event for Tolkien fans and Hobbit collectors for the last four decades, and the 2016 edition will continue to delight and surprise
