Tolkien, Journey to Middle-earth

The BnF is proud to present a major exhibition dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien, the brilliant Oxford professor and creator of imaginary worlds, whose multi-faceted works remain very much alive for a wide audience. Revealing both the man himself and his work, the exhibition will include close to 300 pieces. For the first time in France, many original manuscripts and drawings by J.R.R. Tolkien will be on display. In parallel, a selection of exceptional pieces, most of which are from the BnF collections, will provide a context for this literary and artistic creation.

Today, many of those treasures are preserved at the BnF.
