‘Bilbo comes to the Huts of the Raft-elves’ is an illustration made for The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien in 1937. In it you can see Bilbo sitting on top of a barrel as it floats down the forest river. He and the Dwarves (who are hidden inside the barrels) have just escaped from the Elvenking. This was Tolkien’s favourite watercolour for the book and he was disappointed to find that it had been omitted from the first American edition.
Designed to be easily portable, with ruled pages and handy ribbon marker, this stunning journal uniquely features Tolkien’s exquisite illustration on both front and back covers. A must for all Tolkien enthusiasts.Exclusive to Bodleian Library Publishing with kind permission from The Tolkien Estate.
