From the publisher[edit | edit source]

The official Tolkien calendar, this year containing 13 stunning paintings inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's The Fall of Númenor. Featuring breathtaking artwork by Alan Lee, with two new pieces unique to this calendar.

The official Tolkien calendar has become an established publication, eagerly anticipated by Tolkien fans all over the world. Previous Tolkien calendars have become highly desired collector’s items, and this year’s will doubtless be an essential purchase for Middle-earth fans everywhere.

This year’s calendar features 13 full-color paintings of scenes from across the Second Age of Middle-earth. Famously described by Tolkien as a ‘dark age, and not very much of its history is (or need be) told’, for many years readers would need to be content with the tantalizing glimpses of it found within the pages of The Lord of the Rings and its appendices, including the forging of the Rings of Power, the building of the Barad-dûr and the rise of Sauron. Now presented for the first time in calendar form, with two new paintings from the doyen of Tolkien art, Alan Lee, and an insightful introduction by Brian Sibley, Tolkien fans can discover the Second Age in greater depth than ever before.
