The Tolkien Calendar 1999 was the official Tolkien calendar published by HarperCollins on 15 June 1998. It features art by Alan Lee based on The Hobbit.

[edit] From the publishers

This year’s Tolkien Calendar is based on the anniversary Hobbit illustrated by Alan Lee. Its new lavish presentation includes line drawings and a pull-out poster.

The Tolkien Calendar 1999 features 13 of the 25 full colour paintings from Alan Lee’s Illustrated Hobbit published last autumn to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Tolkien’s beloved classic.

Each month features a colour painting from The Hobbit, plus a complementary line drawing and a quote from the book. Alan Lee has depicted famous scenes including Gollum and Bilbo, The Journey to Rivendell and Smaug the Dragon. This year’s calendar also features a double-sized pull-out centrefold poster.

The Tolkien calendar has become an established publishing event, eagerly looked forward to by Tolkien fans the world over; there is much demand for the annual calendar, with past calendars becoming collectors’ items. This year’s is bigger and more lavish than before and is also the perfect Christmas gift for lovers of fine fantasy art.
