Beren's Tolkien Library site has an exciting update! His book about Cor Blok's work will be available in September and I've already pre-ordered it. It's called A Tolkien Tapestry: Pictures to accompany The Lord of the Rings and you can find out more about it at his site here :D .


From The Tolkien Library:

Readers will find Cor Blok's work refreshing, provocative, charming and wholly memorable – the bold and expressive style that he created stands as a unique achievement in the history of fantasy illustration. Rarely has an artist captured the essence of a writer's work in such singular fashion; the author himself agreed, and what higher accolade is there?

A hundred Cor Blok paintings to enjoy :D

I've already put it on my Amazon Wishlist. So will have to be patient until Christmas . . .

Thanks for posting this, Fangorn! It's interesting to hear him talk about his influences, etc. Still bugs me a little to hear that he doesn't consider himself a Tolkien fan, though.

thanks for this, Fangorn! really interesting to see the man himself describe his art in his own words. I have both the calenders and received the book for Christmas - it's wonderful, and Beren has done a really good job. Blok's work has a charm all its own and I'm glad that he's receiving wider recognition now.
