Worth a Thousand Words: The Hobbit

I'm rereading The Hobbit for the umpteenth time for my Catholic women's book club and one of the sheer delights is examining the illustrations which were drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien himself. This cover shows his unique style and I simply love it.

I snagged this from The Art of Manliness, by the way, which has up a very good piece which I recommend, Lessons in Manliness: The Hobbit.


  1. Thank you. I found a discarded paperback copy of THE HOBBIT in Viet-Nam, and, well, yeah. It was important. Still is.

  2. I enjoyed The Art of Manliness' take on The Hobbit. Thanks.
