The Front Door

The referendum business is just political theatre and nonsense. Depressing nonsense but still nonsense.

Instead, this is cool: a new book of Tolkien's Hobbit artwork. I've loved Tolkien's line drawings ever since I got my first copy of the Hobbit in Standard 6. Meticulous and detailed and intricate, I would try to emulate his style, and I can still smell cheap instant coffee and see the biscuit crumbs and rubbings on my desk as I sat drawing forests and mountains with wavy lines and clouds and sweeping vistas. Pure magic.
