20th November 2011: Second edition of translation volumes

Tolkien in Translation Translating Tolkien: Text and Film In 2003, Walking Tree Publishers released, Tolkien in Translation. The volume looked at different challenges facing Tolkien translators and discussed the translations of Tolkien into a variety of languages. The following year, the book was joined by a second volume, Translating Tolkien: Text and Film, expanding on the subject whilst also looking at a different form of translation: the adaption of Tolkien's works for the cinema – a very topical matter in view of the (then) recent release of Peter Jackson's movie.

Translating Tolkien: Text and Film has been out of print for some time now, and stocks of Tolkien in Translation have also been running low. Walking Tree Publishers are pleased to announce that both volumes have now been reprinted. Their reprinting also marks the completion of an eight-year transition to the print-on-demand format for the Cormarë Series, meaning they will not run out of print again so easily. The format also facilitates availability and distribution through the use of local printing in different locations across the globe.

The opportunity has been taken to make various smaller corrections to the texts while transferring them to our new layout. Cover illustrations were provided by Anke Eißmann.

Information on these volumes is presented on the pages below:

The picture below shows the old and new editions of both books.
