A trip to Middle-earth: New Paris exhibition explores Tolkien's magical world


For some it is a world of hairy toes, of strange and magical creatures that they just don't quite get. For others it is an entire wondrous universe of Middle-earth and Hobbits. The creations of J. R. R. Tolkien have long entertained and fascinated, enthralling millions of people across the globe. In Perspective, we went behind the scenes of a new exhibition on Tolkien which is opening in Paris next week and spoke to Fabrice Canepa, the man who has translated a huge new book on the genius behind it all.
