    Some more excellent additions to Alec's Tolkien collection...

    A lovely matching set with beautiful inscriptions and an additional postcard!



    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    And then we have this. An incredibly rare original piece, Originals by Garland are rarely found for sale.

    An original oil on board from Roger Garland, Tolkien illustrator. “The Watchers” from the Lord of the Rings.

    This is an oil which Alec does not think was actually used in the book, however it was one Roger put forward for inclusion. Have any of our Tolkien collectors seen this before?





    You can view more of Garlands work and discover his long association with Tolkien here:

    Thank you Simon and for the inclusion of Lakeside Gallery.
    The recently framed Garland oil painting is extremely exciting, bolstered by all your generous comments.
    I was interested to know if anyone had come across the painting during their excursions into the world of Tolkien. I would be delighted to hear if you have.
    The books were signed near the end of his life, however the signature and handwriting never cease to amaze me.
    Many thanks for the comments and interest.

    Many thanks for so many kind responses.
    Not so much King at present, more towards Tolkien.
    I have a few more Tolkien items arriving shortly, which will be posted as soon as they are with me.
