That’s stunning… absoloutely great. It’s got such a lovely sense of design to it.
wow, that’s cool!! Who was Amalion again??
Wow, wow, wow….
It looks like part of a tapestry!
wow,tolkien is very good artistÃ©:) ich print that!
oh wow! its a tree of many species
very pretty, finely detailed
niiice…now I gotta find out what/who Amalion is! (forgetfulness sucks)
I’ve never heard of Amalion before. It might just be something he made up especially for this pic.
It’s so beautiful. What was this for anyway? Was it in any of his books?
that is so beautiful! This has got to be my favorite pic Tolkien made
It looks so living. How does that bring far east art in mu mind? I like it.
I always love this tree. Vanya alda !
who is Amalion? nice, reminds me of an antique tapestry…
Wow this is simply beautiful. The Tree of Amalion was used for the Tree and Leaf book cover.He wrote about it
in one of his letters “I have among my ‘papersmore than one version of a mythical ‘tree’,which crops up
regularly when I feel driven to pattern-designing. They are elaborated and coloured and more suitable for
embroidery than printing; and the tree bears besides various shapes of leaves many flowers small and large
signifying poems and major legends.” Hope it helps 🙂
It’s like an illumination in a medieval manuscript!
It looks like something out of a medieval tapestry. NÃ¡ i vanya alda!

Very beautiful! Love it!
Beautiful illistration! Go Tolkien! Out of interest, is this the tree from ‘Leaf by Niggle’?
