PLEASE HELP ......Someone has to know...... Can't Post

HELP! A few weeks ago I was cleaning out my momís house before it sells and came across 7 really neat Lithograph Drawings by an Artist named Susan Greenwood Sweeton aka Lindsey from 1973. Are the drawings collectable they also came with some additional materials?? Iíve only seen 2 on the net after a long search, this is the complete set and they are in mint condition. Iím wondering if anyone knows the value of these. Iím not very familiar with anything related to LOTRs or the Hobbit, so Iím helping someone here can help. Iíve taken photos of the drawings and loaded them to photobucket - The link is below, please forward this on to anyone you know that might have an idea of what these areÖThanks


also please feel free to email me at;

It's working [In reply to] Can't Post

I took a look at the images but I can't help you any.

I think there were a lot of people doing illustrations from Tolkien's work. I found an artist's proof by Holley Chirot of Durthang and the Isenmouthe.

I can't find much about the artist and found only one other example of a Tolkien illustration by her up for auction est. to go for 20-40 dollars.

In casual conversation here on the boards, I'm not sure anyone will have enough knowledge to help you. You may need to consult an auction house to see if you can capitalize on buzz from the upcoming movies.

But, someone may surprise me with just the info you need.

Good luck.

contact the artist via her website? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm sure you found this site: http://www.susangreenwoodlindsaydesign.com/

Although I can't find it on the home page of that site, the google preview reads: S.G. Lindsay aka S.G. Sweeton

It looks like these illustrations were used for (at least) notepads and tshirts.

Thanks for the info, I'll keep everyone posted if I find anything out. I'm thinking about contacting an auction house in the mid-west. Thanks
