J.R.R. Tolkien – Beren and Lúthien

Release date: June 1 2017 • 288 Pages •

The book was beautifully illustrated by Alan Lee and edited by Christopher Tolkien. It is based on one of the stories contained in The Silmarillion (1977), centered around the mortal man Beren and the immortal Elf-maiden Lúthien. Their story took place about 6500 years before the events described in The Lord of the Rings (1954-55) trilogy, with both Aragorn and Arwen being their descendants. What makes this year so special for all Tolkien fans around the world is that it marks the 100th anniversary of the first version for this story, which was written under the name The Tale of Tinúviel!
