Heren Istarion

The 2011 Heren Istarion Calendar is now available for preorder and I'm thrilled to be featured in it again this year, alongside Jef Murray (who has painted the cover picture) and Anke Eissman. If you don't know their wonderful Tolkien work then follow the links to their webstes and take a look.

You will find full details about this beautifully put together calendar and how to order it here:

A bit about the calendar from the Heren Istarion Website:

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of The Northeast Tolkien Society we are happy to announce our 2011 Shire Calendar. 

Once again Phil "Parmastahir" Goss and his wonderful daughter Megan are steadily at work just in time for the Fall Holidays to create another wonderful calendar for us. Many of you, hopefully all of you, know Phil from his incredible Tolkien Calendar Collection, and website dedicated to it: 

The Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Calendars

In its 4th year, our Calendar has been blessed to have a special cover by the brilliant artist Jef Murray.  The reflective nature of Gandalf and Frodo as they look upon the Shire is perfection.  The Northeast Tolkien Society is very grateful to have had such a wonderful community and member support in the past 10 years, and looking ahead we hope to continue being the Tolkien community in the New York City area. 

For our Shire Calendar format we are fortunate to feature the work of Anke Eissman and Sue Wookey, and a special 10th Anniversary centerfold illustration by Catherine Sparsidis to accompany our 10th Anniversary narrative.
