Location: Wisconsin, United States

I am a convert to the Catholic Church after serving in ordained ministry for more than nine years in another denomination. I hold a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in historical theology, and another in systematic theology, and am currently working (very slowly) on my doctorate. I work in Christian Education and Formation and teach at the University level. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and eight great kids! When I'm not studying, reading, or blogging, I enjoy eating and drinking! Like Bilbo Baggins, I have been specializing in food for many years, and my table has a high reputation!

SUBJECT: BOOKS!!! (And Illustrations!!!)

Yes, I know I'm a bit behind the times, but I recently learned of the death of Pauline Baynes. She died a few days short of her 86th birthday. For those amongst my six readers who may not be familiar with her, you would probably recognize her work. Pauline was the illustrator for JRR Tolkien's "Farmer Giles of Ham", "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil", and "Smith of Wooten Major" among other works. At Tolkien's suggestion, she was also engaged by CS Lewis to illustrate "The Chronicles of Narnia".

Anyway, I'd like to draw the attention of my readers to the very fine obituary written by Brian Sibley and posted on his blog.

Pauline Baynes -- "Further Up and Further In". Rest in peace.
