Roger Dean's Gollum

Roger Dean (b. 1944) is a British artist perhaps best known for his album covers, especially those for the band Yes. I knew that he did at least one Tolkien-related illustration, a painting of Gollum, done at the suggestion of a friend.  It's a bit dark (in appears in Views, published in 1975), but I rather like it.


  1. Hi Doug,

    could you give me a hint where to find "Views" - what kind of magazine/ journal is it?

    Not a magazine, but a book of that title. First published in the UK by Dragon's Dream; later published by Paper Tiger.
