I came across this while shelving at work the other day:

Does anyone else find this illustration incredibly hilarious in it’s ability to capture absolutely nothing hobbit-like about Bilbo Baggins besides the fact that he’s smoking a pipe? Granted, it was published in 1968, and it’s for a play, but still… It’s like they didn’ t even try. The biggest offenders are that 1.] his feet are normal size, 2.] he’s wearing shoes, 3.] he looks like he’s a giant because either the artist drew the tree in the back too small, or Bilbo way, way too big and 4.] why did he steal Archie’s hat?
