More About Festival Art and Books

Our Founder, Mark D. Faith began selling his J.R.R Tolkien collection in 2001 under the company name Mark Faith Books. In 2010, following a festival he ran to bring together Tolkien inspired writers, artists and musicians from around the globe, the company name was changed to Festival Art and Books. In this case the word ‘festival’ refers to a celebration rather than an event. More information about the festival can be found under our resources section. If you have an idea for a J.R.R Tolkien inspired fan festival please email markfaith@festivalartandbooks.com. You can also find out more about Mark under the resources tab.
