Postcard reproducing Pauline Baynes cover art
from 1961 Puffin edition of

The Hobbit

by
J.R.R. Tolkien

* Signed by Pauline Baynes *

Postcard issued by
The Marion E. Wade Center,
Wheaton College, Illinois

***

Pauline Baynes is best known for illustrating some of the most celebrated fantasies of the 20th century, most notably C.S. Lewis’s Narnia Chronicles, as well as several works by J.R.R. Tolkien, whose favourite artist she was. Her wonderful maps of Narnia and Middle-earth (for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) are much sought after.

This beautiful postcard reproduces her famous cover illustration for the 1961 Puffin edition of The Hobbit. The painting shows the thirteen dwarves, Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf scaling the Misty Mountains.

The card is signed by Pauline Baynes to the reverse, in ink.
 
A lovely piece of Tolkien ephemera, exceptionally scarce with the artist’s signature.

Inscription and provenance
This signed card is from my own personal collection. I am selling it to raise funds for the illustrator Danuta Mayer (well known, among others, for her beautiful artwork for the Folio Society’s Yellow Fairy Book). Danuta was a close friend of Pauline Baynes for nearly 30 years; Pauline – a great animal lover – supported Danuta not only in her illustration career but also in her work with rescued animals. A few years before her death, Pauline signed a collection of books and ephemera for Danuta, with the intention that these would be sold to raise funds for Danuta’s small animal sanctuary. Pauline signed several pieces for me at the same time, of which this postcard is one. All proceeds from this sale will go directly to Danuta. I will provide a letter of provenance if desired.
 
Postcard is in excellent condition.
Approximate size 5.9 x 4.1 inches (15 x 10.5 cm).
