It’s difficult to describe exactly what informs my interest in Tolkien, but suffice it to say quite simply that I have a powerful affinity with his writing, so full of vast, lost, misty expanses and its unique mixture of the familiar and strange. His emphasis on light and shadow in particular, whether metaphorical or literal, justifies any artist’s interest. I instinctively relate to the whole phenomenon that is Tolkien’s Middle-earth, for surely his work bears comparison with the most intricately plotted, most imaginative literature ever written.

Ted Nasmith (born 1956) is a Canadian artist, illustrator and architectural renderer. He is best known as an illustrator of J. R. Tolkien's works - The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. Nasmith was born in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. As the son of a Royal Canadian Air Force officer, Nasmith's childhood was characterized by a series of moves, chiefly when his father was stationed in eastern France when Ted was 2 years old, until the family returned to Ontario 3 years later

Ted Nasmith, a native of Goderich in Ontario, spent his youth, just as many other Canadians, by moving a lot. He lived for example three years in France and during holidays visited many European countries. He started drawing a lot during his childhood and already during his education took a road towards making his hobby into a profession by enrolling into a commercial art program. At first working as an architectural renderer, Ted Nasmith soon choose to become a professional illustrator and is now seen as one of the best Tolkien illustrators on this planet.

Needed it to keep collection going, do not much care for the art work. Wish we could get the art they had on the calendars from the mid 70's again.
Good service by seller, they have nothing to do with the art, not a reflection on them.
Silly Dog
An interesting piece of art. I am glad to add it to the calendars I have collected these past 15 or so years.

My son has received a Tolkien Calendar for Christmas for about the last 35 years. He is a REAL Tolkien fan.
The pictures in this one where absolutely wonderful - the best ever. He really liked it.

What a hideous piece of crap. The 2011 calendar was bad enough but now to have this art? featured on the 2012 calendar as well is a crime. What kind of morons are the publishers that they allowed Tolkien to be so disgraced? These 2 calendars will make me stop collecting the yearly calendars. If I could I'd rate it negative stars.

Scenes represent the artist's perspective to which viewers might have different reactions. Characters are sometimes not recognizable when one sees the depictions the first time. Symbolism is also not clear without interpretation in the flap. Art seems to me to be of high quality for symbolic art. Artist's perspective is interesting although probably not universal.

It is really nice! My husband has been collecting these for over 30 years and was happy to add this to his collection!

If you like Talkies, you will want to add this to your collection. It's beautiful
For the second year in a row the official Tolkien calendar features artwork from the Dutch artist Cor Blok, who began painting scenes from Tolkien's works in the early 1960s and who actually met the author, who was impressed enough by his work to buy a couple of the paintings. Blok's style is a sharp departure from the illustrations used in earlier Tolkien calendars, including some by Tolkien himself, all of which usually featured much detail and attempted to depict scenes as accurately as possible.

Blok himself in the 2011 calendar draws a distinction between "depicting" and "describing." His "human" figures tend to be minimal, with little attempt to differentiate them beyond details of clothing and size. His nature scenes are somewhat more finished but still tend to be stylized. I do find some of the illustrations in this calendar more appealing than those in the 2011 version, especially May's "The Journey Through Lorien," which is a rich woodland scene with bright greens and golds and pale tree trunks. I also found November's very dark "The Watchers" depicting the Tower of Cirith Ungol appealing for its sense of brooding danger. And December's "The Destruction of the Ring" is quite vivid, with an unfortunately too reptilian Gollum in the act of toppling into the flames while Barad-dur crumbles to the side. I didn't like the paintings that merely depict characters, again because they tend to lack differentiation or personality. Some are unintentionally funny like October's "Grima Dismissed" showing Wormtongue offhandedly spitting while a stylized group of onlookers peer sideways at him; or August's "Kheled-Zaram" which looks like a couple of muggers creeping up on their next victim! The centerfold features a "Tolkien Tapestry" of more Blok works, some of which were used in the 2011 calendar.

The fact that Blok is not to my personal taste as a Tolkien illustrator should not detract from the fact that he has an original and unorthodox view which has allowed him to create some arresting paintings. I'll enjoy using this calendar because I always like to be reminded of J.R.R. Tolkien, whose writings have enriched my life for over 40 years.
