Drawings, pictures and maps?

Just an aside question which comes to my mind while I am working on the Fall of Nargothrond part of the Narn:
Are we going to include drawings and pictures from JRR Tolkien in our book?

And what about his Maps?

Both questions are not so easy. The drawings and pictures nearly unchangeable at all. Maybe we could change a name in the underscript and even that is difficult if the underscript is part of the picture and no other change seemes possible at all. But some pictures can clearly be used and they would bring a further aspect of Tolkiens view of Middle-Earth.

In the maps we must reproduce the drawing but the names written on it must be fit the nomenclature. Thus the maps will make a lot of trouble. But for me it seems that we need the maps.

So what do you think?

To tell you the truth, I never did see our work as a book. I just thought that we would hopefully one day finish the chapters of the Sil Project and that would be it.

I think that there was a thread somewhere about maps and pictures. I think that it would be nice for us to have them, especially updated them with the new names and stuff but at least I could not do it.

If you or anyone else wants to do it, great, I can see that it would be a great addition but for me at least, reading our chapters, especially the one about the Narn is enough for me.

Pictures that in my opinion should be used in the „Translation from the Elvish / Part One: The Elder Days“. I will give the title of the Picture the chapter in our work were I think it should fit and the book were it can be found there after the no. it has in that book and the page (p.) were it is in my edition. Pictures stands for Pictures by JRR Tolkien and Artist for JRR Tolkien – Artist and Ilustrator edited by Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull.

I'll go through and correct those to the English names, if you like.

And yes, I am still making every effort to continue with the work on Beren and Luthien - I should have some more comments up in a day or so.

Okay, I've corrected the titles. I will give my thoughts on the pictures later. However, it seems to me that "Eeriness" (Artist No. 40) and "Water, Wind & Sand" (Artist No. 42) ought to have a place in your list.

Thanks for the correction.

I agree fully on "Eeriness", but I thought of using it in one of the later volumes. It seems perfect as a illustration of one of the Istari.

"Water, Wind and Sand" I missed that one. We will put it in its proper place as an illsutration of "The Horns of Ylmir". "Cove near Lizard" (which I would have used in that place) should than be placed (I think) as illustration of the incoming flood observed by Tuor in the fjord of Drengist.
