A talk with Alan Lee 

In partnership with Falmouth Bookseller and The Poly we are delighted to be welcoming Tolkien illustrator Alan Lee to Falmouth for a talk on the publication of THE FALL OF NÚMENOR.

Lee is a renowned fantasy illustrator known for his illustrations bringing to life the world of Middle-Earth, and his Academy Award-winning work on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. He’ll be joining us to discuss his work and his contributions to the latest illustrated Tolkien compendium THE FALL OF NÚMENOR and Other Tales from the Second Age of Middle-Earth by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Brian Sibley.

Alan Lee will be signing copies of THE FALL OF NÚMENOR at Falmouth Bookseller immediately after the event. Additional backlist titles will also be available for purchase at the shop on the night.

Guests will be allowed a maximum of 3 items to be signed.

For individuals not attending the talk but still wishing to come to the signing Alan will be at the bookshop for approximately 1.5 hours immediately after the talk.  Priority will be to event ticket holders but there should be ample time for additional signing attendees.  Please keep your ticket stubs after the event as we will use these to ensure priority access to the signing.


The perfect companion guide to the greatly anticipated prequel to Lord of the Rings, The Rings of Power Amazon Prime series, out in September 2022.

Presenting for the first time in one volume the events of the Second Age as written by J.R.R. Tolkien and assembled by Brian Sibley, this new volume will include never before seen pencil drawings and colour paintings by multi-prize-winning illustrator Alan Lee, who also illustrated The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and went on to win an Academy Award for his work on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. THE FALL OF NÚMENOR details the events which ultimately lead to the Third Age, and the War of the Ring, as told in The Lord of the Rings.
