There and Back Again


Rumour has it Peter Jackson is a step closer to directing The Hobbit, possibly to be released in two parts. This would be extraordinary and welcome news but I am still holding out for a five part Peter Jackson Silmarillion.

Kiwi director Peter Jackson could be shoulder-tapped for the hairy feat of returning to Middle-earth to make the prequel to The Lord of the Rings. Hollywood studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has revealed it will make a movie version of The Hobbit – and plans to approach the Wellington film-maker.

In the meantime, here are some understated Polish elves and some interesting if undragonish ruminations on Tolkien and "the New Art". Best of all is a photo which takes my breath away. Consider it alongside Eigera, Monch and Jungfrau, otherwise known as Irensaga and Starkhorn flanking the Dwimorberg. Before them lie the road to Dunharrow and the horrors waiting in the Dimholt.
