The TT picture was originally, for "The Silmarillion", _Beleg Finds Gwindor
in Taur-nu-Fuin_. Tolkien retitled this _Fangorn Forest_ when it appeared
in the 1974 Allen & Unwin _Tolkien Calendar_ -- hoping, evidently, that the
elves Beleg and Gwindor would be mistaken for hobbits Merry and Pippin. Of
course he had earlier made a black and white version of this, without
figures, as _Mirkwood_ in early printings of _The Hobbit_.

Yes, they're in _Artist & Illustrator_. Christina and I made sure to
include all of Tolkien's best work.
