1987 Tolkien Calendar - Unwin Paperbacks
1987. Unwin Paperbacks. The Tolkien Calendar 1987. ISBN: 0-04-529010-5. 13 5/8 x 15. Spiral bound with a loop for hanging. Artwork by Roger Garland, John Howe, Ted Nasmith and Alan Lee. In this calendar first appears the work of the illustrator John Howe, perhaps the greatest illustrator of Tolkien's work. Although others have certainly done illustrations of great merit, John Howe's work is active and dynamic; heros and evil characters look the part without appearing cartoon-like. It is unfortunate that only three illustrations by John Howe appear in the calendar. Who can read the part about the Mouth of Sauron without recalling this image of John Howe? Alan Lee also produced some images for this calendar. Although Alan lee has great artistic skill, his imagery is just too faint and misty. I want to see something! Ted Nasmith is the best landscape painter of all the illustrators who have contributed to the calendars. He cannot draw human forms. In particular, the hobbits look like small, prune-faced old men.
