A beautiful little book featuring ink drawings of trees by Jemima Catlin who also illustrated the wonderful 2013 illustrated edition of The Hobbit.
This is a limited edition of 50, and I was very pleased when I discovered that I had manage to secure number 2!
The drawings are of locations around Dorchester in England, completed in the summer and autumn of 2013. While not strictly speaking ‘Tolkien related’ the pictures certainly have a Tolkienesque quality to them and bring to mind the natural beauty of The Shire and the simple pleasure of a walk in the country.
‘Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way’
