Re: The Fall of Arthur
- View SourceHello,
The comments here make me hope my own copy of the book will arrive soon.
However, I've just come across a small piece of information. As pointed out by Julien Mansencal, it seems the book cover of _The Fall of Arthur_ is inspired by the 13th century grave of a knight of Palays (from South-West France), now located in the Musée des Augustins in Toulouse, my hometown.
Of course, I'm planning to have a look it's been a long time I haven't visited this museum. Any visiting Tolkiendil is free to join!
