A look into Tolkien’s thoughts on creativity, not just through “On Fairy-stories” and “Leaf by Niggle,” as one might expect, but also through Tolkien’s visual art. The authors discuss and demonstrate how MacLeod’s own art was influenced by Tolkien’s philosophy of sub-creation. Illustrated with six photos, sketches, and completed paintings by MacLeod.
