Ruling is hard. This was maybe my answer to Tolkien, whom, as much as I admire him, I do quibble with. "Lord of the Rings" had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it's not that simple. Tolkien can say that Aragorn became king and reigned for a hundred years, and he was wise and good. But Tolkien doesn't ask the question: What was Aragorn's tax policy? Did he maintain a standing army? What did he do in times of flood and famine? And what about all these orcs? By the end of the war, Sauron is gone but all of the orcs aren't gone – they're in the mountains. Did Aragorn pursue a policy of systematic genocide and kill them? Even the little baby orcs, in their little orc cradles?

Book Map

A street map made up from the titles of over 600 books from the history of English Literature (and a few favourites from further afield). The Map includes classics such as Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Bleak House, Vanity Fair and Wuthering Heights as well as 20th and 21st Century works such as The Waste Land, To the Lighthouse, Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse 5, The Catcher in the Rye, The Wasp Factory, Norwegian Wood and The Road.

The Map, which is loosely based on a turn of the century London street map also includes fictional areas dedicated to the works of Thomas Hardy, Virginia Woolf, Tolkien, Harry Potter and a children's literature district featuring such classics as The Railway Children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Where the Wild Things Are. There's an A-Z key at the base of the Map listing all the books featured along with the author's name and the date first published.

Ennorath - Śródziemie

Jest jedyną mapą łączącą w sobie dużą dokładność z atrakcyjnością wizualną i polskie tłumaczenie nazw. Tłumaczenia opracowane zostały na podstawie książki Arkadiusza Kubali Przewodnik po nazwach miejscowych Śródziemia, oraz przy współpracy tolkienistów z forum dyskusyjnego "Elendili" (szczególnie podziękowania dla Ryszarda Derdzińskiego).

Tengwar dookoła jest quenijskim tekstem będącym tłumaczeniem fragmentu Valquenty:

oni zaś grali i śpiewali Wielką Muzykę przed jego obliczem. Z tej muzyki począł się Świat, Ilúvatar bowiem nadał pieśni Ainurów postać widzialną i ujrzeli ją jak światłość w ciemnościach. Wielu z nich zakochało się wówczas w piękności świata i jego historii, gdy zobaczyli, jak się rodzi i rozwija w objawionej im wizji. Dlatego Ilúvatar obdarzył ich wizję rzeczywistym Bytem, osadził ją pośród Pustki i zesłał Tajemny Ogień, aby się wiecznie palił w sercu Świata, który został nazwany Eä. (Silmarillion, str. 23)

Tove Jansson (author of childrens’ book series "The Moomins") apparently did some side illustration work for a Finnish version of Tolkien’s "The Hobbit", as well as Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland".
