A huge J.R.R. Tolkien exhibition at Paris BNF for Fall 2019

J.R.R. Tolkien fans can smile! The Bibliothèque Nationale de France has announced an immersive retrospective around Tolkien’s work, famous for creating – among others – the Hobbit universe. But you’ll have to wait until Fall 2019 to discover the exhibition.

2019 will be undoubtedly a famous year for all The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fans. And for good reason, the BNF, understand Bibliothèque Nationale de France or France’s National Library will dedicate a huge exhibition to British writer J.R.R. Tolkien’s work.

To be discovered from October 21, 2019 and until January 2020, this exhibition – said to be the greatest French retrospective dedicate to Tolkien – will take fans to the universe of this unparalleled genius.

According to the first announcements, the exhibition will feature over 200 pieces and cover 1000sqm. Fans can discover many original manuscripts and drawings ordered to English drawer Alan Lee. These pieces will return to the author’s life as well as his work heritage.

On the occasion, the BNF will join forces with the Bodley library, Oxford University, that housed the exhibition called “JRR Tolkien: Maker of Middle-Earth” from June to October 2018.

So, happy?

In the meantime, why not going to Paris Grand Rex on December 7, 2018 for a Lord of the Rings marathon?
