Tolkien Art Index

43 TAI reproductions in J.R.R. Tolkien Calendar 1979

This is a listing of all works in the Tolkien Art Index reproduced in J.R.R. Tolkien Calendar 1979, presented in the same order. Insofar as TAI at this time indexes only artwork that is not demonstrably un-related to Middle-earth (see Purpose & Scope), this may not represent a complete listing of Tolkien’s art in J.R.R. Tolkien Calendar 1979. Note that, as a side effect of presenting items in the order in which they’re reproduced in a book, items represented more than once within a book will be duplicated in this listing.
