What did Tolkien learn? [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, he learned he'd have to alter pictures to suit publishers' constraints on types of acceptable media, and that what he'd like to see in print will not always be what fits their needs.

What's amazing is that his pictures suited the tone of The Hobbit so well. Few writers can do that. The pictures are not "perfect", but they help add definition to the story.

Thank you (a bit belatedly) for finishing this up for us! It's always a treat to take a look at the Master's handiwork.
