A set of eight postcards featuring photographs of J.R.R. Tolkien taken by Pamela Chandler in 1961 and 1966.
In 1961, Pamela Chandler was commissioned to take portraits of Professor Tolkien. The formal black and white portraits were taken in his study at 76 Sandfield Road, Oxford.
At that time she also took informal photographs of the Professor and his wife, Edith, in the garden.
In 1966, when visiting the Tolkiens, she took a further series of less formal colour photographs of them both, in the study and in the garden.
This set is a selection of eight postcards from both sessions.
