Tolkien’s Ring

Contact: David Day and Alan Lee

Using the archetypes of the Ring of Power and the Ring Quest as it’s main thread, David Day looks at J.R.R. Tokien’s sources and “forbearers” in Norse, Arthurian, Carolingian, Saxon, Germanic, Classical, Biblical, Oriental and Alchemical myths. The illustrations are by Alan Lee, who was a major conceptual designer for the Peter Jackson films. If you like Tolkeen and you like Campbell, check it out.
