British Library buys Tolkien maps
The British Library in London have recently added a set of the Tolkien maps Stephen Raw drew for ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to their world-renowned map collection. Stephen, commissioned by the publishers HarperCollins, worked under the tutilage of Christopher Tolkien who had drawn the originals for his father, J R R Tolkien. Why they came about can be seen on the special website as well as how they can look framed. The limited edition of the three maps, each signed and numbered, are still available to buy.
