The Tolkien Calendar 2006 was the official Tolkien calendar published by HarperCollins on 4 July 2005. Branded as The Hobbit Calendar, it features art by J.R.R. Tolkien based on The Hobbit.

[edit] From the publisher

Following the success of the Lord of the Rings 50th Anniversary Calendar, this year’s calendar features paintings by J.R.R. Tolkien himself from the beloved children’s classic, The Hobbit.

The Tolkien calendar for 2006 continues in a popular tradition, building on the success of The Lord of the Rings 50th anniversary calendar, presenting art that has not appeared in calendar form for 30 years.

This year’s calendar features 15 paintings and illustrations by J.R.R. Tolkien himself, which were drawn by Tolkien when writing his beloved children’s classic, The Hobbit. They provide a fascinating insight into how Tolkien imagined the world of Middle-earth would look.

The images are accompanied by informative text which explains how they relate to the story and offers information on their content and history.

Also included, by way of a “poster”, are the two colour maps that the author produced to illustrated Bilbo’s travels: the first of Thror’s Map, showing the location of the Lonely Mountain, the Dwarven treasure and the large dragon that guarded it; and the second of Wilderland, the strange realms that lie over the Misty Mountains into the West.
