Pauline Baynes map

Today’s featured piece is Pauline Bayne’s colored/illustrated full Middle Earth map! Pauline Baynes was a classic illustrator of Tolkien’s works, probably the one who he favored most during his life. She never did a full illustrated edition of LOTR, but she illustrated many of Tolkien’s shorter works such as Farmer Giles of Ham, Smith of Wootton Major, and The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. She is also known for doing the classic cover art for The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis). The map is beautiful, so definitely check it out!!

Enjoy! ~Tom
