Concerning Hidden Realities and Human Destiny

My new Tolkien book (+ A Giveaway!)

John Carswell | Monday, March 12, 2018

I'm excited to announce that my new Tolkien book is officially COMING SOON. Tolkien's Overture is an in-depth exploration of the Middle-earth creation myth "Ainulindalë", aka "The Music of the Ainur".
Tolkien's Overture - Concerning the Music of the Ainur (Ainulindalë) by John Carswell
I've been fascinated by this legend for a long time, and Tolkien's Overture represents my work over the last 2 years to examine the story closely in order to unpack its rich meaning, as well as the central role that music plays in the rest of Middle-earth's history.

Enter to Win!

Pre-orders will be opening up soon, but right now you have a chance to win a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator, the marvelous guide to Tolkien's Middle-earth artwork!

Deadline for entry is 6PM US Central Time on Sunday. Act now so you don't miss out!

Lots more to follow, including release dates, pre-order packages, and much much more. Make sure you stay tuned in!
