Tolkien Raft-elves Journal

Edited by the Bodleian Library
A hardback journal featuring J. R. R. Tolkien’s illustration for The Hobbit.

“Bilbo comes to the Huts of the Raft-elves” is an illustration made for The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien in 1937. This image was Tolkien’s favorite watercolor for the book, and he was disappointed to find that it had been omitted from the first American edition.

Designed to be easily portable, the journal includes lined pages and a ribbon marker. Produced with careful attention to finishing and details, this stunning journal makes for the perfect gift for writers, stationery lovers, and Tolkien enthusiasts.

160 pages | 5 1/2 x 8 1/4
