“Leaves from the Ent” are being sold on eBay to fund a 20-foot-high sculpture of an Ent that will be placed along Brimingham City’s Tolkien Trail. The sculptor is Tim Tolkien, grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien’s younger brother, Hilary. You can purchase a leaf at the “buy it now” price of £500, or take your chances at auction.
Update 4/10/2008: Corrected spelling after Michael Walsh sent an e-mail pointing out, “It’s eBay, not Ebay. I know this from proofing the next Waldrop collection I’m publishing. Yeah, Waldrop and something online, not your ususal combination.”
