Namárië! Barbara Remington Dies, Age 90 Can't Post

Tolkien hated her art but for a lot of people my age, her tripadelic covers seemed to be an extension of the Ralph Bakshi movie (1978). I still love her triptych, it captured a mood and a moment perfectly.

We're really losing a lot of people who helped make Middle Earth the enduring phenomenon it is today. Sigh. . . .

You're right... we're losing so many [In reply to] Can't Post



Her covers for LotR & TH are so iconic and were my first 2 of my original set of LotR. The full-sized poster of her covers and the lion & emus vs no lion & emus covers for The Hobbit is still a bit topic for collectors.

You're so right that we're losing many of those who have created and nurtured Middle-earth are being lost to us. I think Ms Remington knew what her work meant to the evolution of Tolkien's world... and what a big part she played in it.

Thank you for this. Peace for her family, friends and fans.

Yeah, I don't have any objection to using a lion as a metaphor for the perils of Middle-earth, as I'm sure that lions could be found in several regions of M-e even if Tolkien never mentioned them. Emus might have been a bit more scarce, probably not found outside of the Dark Land/South Land across the Inner Seas from Harad. Wink

Ms. Remington's paintings of Middle-earth might not have been entirely accurate, but they were certainly evocative, almost haunting.
