Father Christmas Letters Can't Post

I've just heard on BBC radio that next summer there will be an exhibition at the Bodleian, Oxford, of Tolkien's Father Christmas Letters, as well as other items from the Tolkien collection. How delightful to see those letters in their original form! I don't think they have been displayed before, though they have been printed - I have the book. That's a welcome pre-Christmas announcement, and something to look forward to, for those able to visit and see them.

It's an annual tradition [In reply to] Can't Post

of mine to read at least a few of the Christmas letters. I'll have to wander on up to see those. Thanks for the information.

Oh... how I wish I could see those :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope someday they'll be on a world-wide tour for a chance to see these!

I've seen his maps and some writings on a visit to a display in Chicago during a TORnsibbie Map Moot and in a special display in NYC of his hand-written menu and notes while on moot of a TORn Radio City Music Hall movie/live orchestra performance.

Like seeing a fiery sunrise of the Rocky Mountains, a pristine brook softly running over rocks in the woods or watching the stars at night in a clear black sky... some things you just have to see in person... in real time... to enjoy its beauty and wonder. For me, Tolkien's writings and pictures are right up there in beautiful, wonderful things. ;)


We have been there and back again.
