Yes, there is an Arwen Barbie...... - Tehanu @ 03:54 PST
Well not quite. I'm not sure how serious people were about this Tolkien Barbie Swap Meet thing. But for those that were, sort of, a TORN correspondent can offer real Tolkien dolls from the Franklin mint.

"I was wondering if you might include my new eBay auction in your auction watch. I have ALL THREE of the Hildebrandt/Franklin Mint Tolkien Dolls up for grabs as a single lot. (Just moved, no job yet, it's Very Cold in these Olympic Mountains and I need propane!!!!!!) The dolls are in excellent condition, have all access. Galadriel needs a leg tightened but there's no visible damage. Two are missing the boxes and Eowyn is missing her papers. Anyway the auction is under the name Quilbilly on eBay."

And the rest is up to you.

Rare opportunity to see Ted Nasmith's work 'Live.' - Tehanu @ 17:18 PST
"ONE RING TO BRING THEM ALL" - The paintings of Ted Nasmith.

We got a press release from Chalk Farm Gallery in London about their Ted Nasmith exhibition which they're holding from the 8th Dec - 5th January

"As the Lord of the Rings is the most popular book in the world bar the bible, and was recently voted Book of the Century, it is hardly surprising that the first film in the trilogy, due for release next year, is being touted as the 'new Star Wars'. It is against this backdrop that we announce our third exhibition of the work of the celebrated Tolkien Artist Ted Nasmith.

Since 1972 when Nasmith first embarked on his career his imagination, passion and incredible eye for detail have helped him rise to the top in this fiercely competitive and highly specialised field. His work has been seen on Tolkien calendars all over the world and he was the sole illustrator of the much acclaimed recent publication of the Silmarillion, though perhaps his highest accolade was the approval of Tolkien himself before his death.

Much of the work to be included in this exhibition will be the original paintings used for the Silmarillon, along with older pieces of scenes from The Lord of the Rings, and some created specifically for this show. As Nasmith rarely exhibits his paintings it is one of the few chances for fans in this country to see his work, and though much of it will be pre-sold to private collectors it will remain in the gallery for the duration of the show."

There's more information on their website - where you can view some images - or you can phone them (UK) 0207 267 3300
