German website Elbenwald has a complete (low-res) preview of every month of the 2013 Hobbit calendar. August (see right), through to November contain several new images and stills that I don’t think I’ve previously seen — including one of Radagast in an unknown location that seems to be a ruin (Dol Guldur, perhaps?), while December is contains a montage of the barrels-out-of-bond sequence that has now been pushed back to film two.

While it isn’t exactly “news” it will be of a lot of interest to those who haven’t seen the 2011 version of the annual Tolkien calendar that Cor Blok is next year’s artist.
Blok is the only Tolkien artist living who met J.R.R. Tolkien in person and the English professor bought two paintings from the Dutch professor (history of art) and was given a third as a gift. Blok’s work, produced 50 years ago, is a definite departure from the more familiar works many fans are used to. He reportedly produced over 100 illustrations. You can pre-order it here and you can read a recent interview with Blok here. It is scheduled to be available in July.Posted in Calendars, J.R.R. Tolkien, Merchandise
