Game of Thrones author George RR Martin is a self-confessed Tolkien fan. The team at Leaves of Gold Press are Tolkien fans too – we named our company after a line in one of his poems!

Now you can read the very same books Professor Tolkien read when he was growing up – the books that influenced his writing of The Lord of the Rings.

Our best-selling book in our ‘Professor’s Bookshelf’ range is ‘The Poetic Edda – illustrated’. It is one of the rare editions to contain not only the famous Edda translated into English, but also the original Icelandic language that Tolkien himself read. Read and enjoy!
