Original Drawings by J.R.R. Tolkien Are Coming to New York's Morgan Library Can't Post

A collection of British fantasy writer J.R.R. Tolkien's original drawings and illustrations will make a rare appearance in the U.S. this month. As AM New York reports, works from the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries will be traveling across the pond to New York City, where they'll go on display at The Morgan Library & Museum.

Oh Geez!! *twitch* [In reply to] Can't Post

That will be such a great collection to see! I'm not doing much travelling anymore... but if I were, that is absolutely one I'd hit!

Some years ago, some of us sibbies mooted in Chicago to attend a museum's display of maps (and other materials), and Tolkien's hand-drawn maps were a part of that. It's surreal to stand in front of Professor Tolkien's actual work and to be so close to it.

Thanks for the heads-up. I hope you can make it there :D

We have been there and back again.

I'm going to go see it! And I can't wait! [In reply to] Can't Post

It'll be my birthday present to myself - this is something I cannot miss, no way. My sister is a total Tolkien geek too, and actually lives in the city, so she'll probably end up coming too. So Excited!

I love The Hobbit. Always will.

There's a thread on the Moots page [In reply to] Can't Post

where some of us are planning a visit - see the thread here. That trip is planned for Easter weekend, and there might be other TORNfolk visiting at other times.
