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?
