Hobbit website launched

Elf speakers and Hobbit hobbyists get a new website today, courtesy of JRR Tolkien publisher HarperCollins. The site, www.tolkien.co.uk, has been created by HarperCollins’ in-house team, lead by senior Web designer Jason Beck. It is designed to capitalise on interest in the The Lord Of The Rings story stimulated by the eponymous film, which opens across the UK in December. The site is aimed at a more adult audience than the film’s website and includes rare archive interviews with Tolkien and examples of his original artwork.
