New Acquisition 4_10_2016

I was at the bookstore yesterday, just wandering around after ordering a copy of the movie version of MacBeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, and I saw a book I had heard would be coming out months ago, and then promptly forgot about.

How did I forget a new Tolkien book was coming out?

How?!

*sighs*  However I managed to forget that the The Story of Kullervo was due out, I saw it on the shelf at the bookstore, and now it is on my shelf.

I love that the publishers use Tolkien’s own illustrations for these covers. Sure, maybe it’s a cost saving measure, and they don’t want to have to pay a current artist for new work, but there’s something marvelous about seeing how Tolkien visualized his own writing.
