Re: Thank you and happy double-hobbit birthday

Ah, Mary, how lovely of you to stop by and comment, thoughtfully and appreciatively as is your wont. :)

I'd love to see this piece in color, too. Jan found a color version of 'Beyond' on line, but the colors were not those described by Hammond and Scull. So we must presume it was a photo-shopped version of the black and white reproduction by some fan artist.

"Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator" is a super book packed with fine commentary and lots of color reproductions, but there remain twenty-two reproductions of works using color elements (watercolors, colored pencils or inks) that are in black and white. I wish 'Beyond' had been one of the color ones.
