Tolkien Art Index

2 TAI reproductions in The Writer’s Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands

Lewis-Jones, Huw. The Writer’s Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands. The University of Chicago Press, 2018.


This is a listing of all works in the Tolkien Art Index reproduced in The Writer’s Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands, presented in the same order. Insofar as TAI at this time indexes only artwork that is not demonstrably un-related to Middle-earth (see Purpose & Scope), this may not represent a complete listing of Tolkien’s art in The Writer’s Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands. Note that, as a side effect of presenting items in the order in which they’re reproduced in a book, items represented more than once within the book will be duplicated in this listing.
