Bilbo's Last Song by J. R. R. Tolkien, Pauline Baynes, Pauline Baynes

Bilbo’s Last Song is considered by many to be Tolkien’s epilogue to his classic work The Lord of the Rings. As Bilbo Baggins takes his final voyage to the Undying Lands, he must say goodbye to Middle-earth. Poignant and lyrical, the song is both a longing to set forth on his ultimate journey and a tender farewell to friends left behind.
Pauline Baynes’s jewel-like illustrations lushly depict both this final voyage and scenes from The Hobbit, as Bilbo remembers his first journey while he prepares for his last.

It may be a short book, but it's very beautiful and poetic. And the pictures are...Wow. I have loved all of Tolkien's books, expecially The Lord of the Rings. This book is Bilbo's last poems as he goes to the Grey Haven with the Elves. I would recomend it to someone who enjoyed The Hobbit and others by Tolkien.

This is a short book with lavish illustration, containing the song that Bilbo wrote before leaving Middle-Earth for the Grey Havens. It's a nice song, but this is the wrong book if you're looking for any history of Middle-Earth.

Elrond has blue eyeshadow. In fact, all the elves look like drag-queens. Bilbo has more rouge than a clown. Ms. Baynes' illustrations were great for the Chronicles of Narnia, but in my opinion, much to 'pretty' and childish for the the likes of Tolkien.
