A nice surprise in my morning perusal of WSJ, review of an exhibition in Oxford, which will travel to NY in Jan 2019 (moot?):

When you have time, could you summarize it (or link to someone else’s)? WSJ is subscriber-only.

The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Here is the same news from other sources. It sounds fascinating.

The WSJ article described how the shown map is taped around edges with other sheets as it kept expanding.
The one in NY will also have interactive displays for kids to explore Tolkien. :D :D
