"Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back.
But I would not have come, had I known the danger of light and joy."

Hello to All -

Updated the Calendar of the Month feature at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

At the risk of spoiling the surprise, it is the 1986 Beyond Bree calendar. It is a rarely seen issue and only the second of their series. I featured this one in anticipation of the issue of their 2011 calendar which commemorates the 30th anniversary of Beyond Bree. Congratulations to Nancy Martsch and all who support this active society.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise can not see all ends.

Very interesting calendar! I love the script on the actual calendar pages and how wonderful to finally see an illustration of the Cake from Smith of Wootton Major (August). The only other one I know is Pauline Baynes. I also love the King's Tree (December, also from SoWM).

What a fabulous calendar, Parmastahir! It was definitely worth ripping off that shrinkwrap. I love Zhouf's work which is completely new to me. I think that's the first illustration I've seen of the Huorns attacking the orcs (February). Terrific! And that's a great Old Man Willow picture too. I also love April, May, June..... OK, I love ALL of them :lol: .

2011 HI/NETS Calendar!

Postby Parmastahir » Wed Oct 27, 2010 1:16 am

With apologies to Iolanthe who doesn't know this yet . . .

If you're looking for a Christmas gift for a Tolkien fan, please consider the 2011 Heren Istarion/Northeast Tolkien Society Calendar available at:

http://herenistarionnets.blogspot.com/p ... endar.html

The fourth in this series of calendars, it features another wonderful cover by Jef Murray, illustrations by Anke Eissmann and Sue Wookey (our own Iolanthe), and a specially created centerfold by Catherine Sparsidis commemorating their 10th anniversary. Net proceeds benefit this official Tolkien Society smial. My daughter and I printed a rather limited edition: only 65 will be available!

Comments on 2010 HI/NETS Calendar

Postby Parmastahir » Sun Oct 31, 2010 3:19 pm

Hi Iolanthe!

There are four colleagues at my workplace that now look forward to (and purchase) the HI/NETS calendar. Every one of them said either "Oooohh" or "Wow" when they opened up the calendar and saw your illo of Gollum and the ring! (It's my favorite, too, and the first one that I wanted to include in this issue.) The simple complexity (there's an oxymoron for you) of it is amazing. Thanks for your support of our annual issue. Hope you use the calendar in good health and prosperity throughout 2011!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm
