Silver Leaves Issue 5: The Hobbit

Silver Leaves Issue 5: The Hobbit

Issue5_500_1024x1024What better way to celebrate our fifth birthday than with
an issue about The Hobbit! We delve into a variety of
ways to approach the book, as well as explore various
character aspects of well-known hobbits. There are also
thoughts on new versions of the story as it makes its way
to film and to a newly illustrated edition.

As the tale of Bilbo Baggins makes its way to new formats
and versions, we can’t help but search for the heart of
the story. And, as we search, we are reminded that you
cannot come to the end of things to say or ways to be
inspired by Tolkien and his works. There will never be too
many ways to celebrate simplicity, fellowship, honour,
magic, wonder, or imagination. The very things at the
heart of this story lie at the heart of our own stories. How
can we tire of exploring this landscape? ~Lara Sookoo, Editor in Chief
