Eldy, you wouldn't happened to have been there the first weekend of April? A handful of us were able to get together and see the exhibit in NYC a few weeks ago. If you haven't gone yet, I'd definitely recommend it.

Zigur, I felt the same about the no photography, because despite it being small, there was a lot on display! (for Bethberry's question in the I met a fellow BDer thread, I do vaguely recall seeing Tolkien's diary). The art and hand drawn maps were a treat, because I always had this idea of Tolkien being a great story-teller, but to personally see his art work, calligraphy, and cartography was a different experience for me.

I got a laugh from the one Beleriand map where Tolkien had hand drawn trees for Brethil and Taur-im-Duinath, but for Doriath, just wrote DORIATH. It's like he got tired of drawing trees, because the one place in Beleriand you expect a forest, he drew no trees.
