While the symbols on a treasure map may be expected to lead to the location of the hidden treasure, the decorative border of a title page is not usually suspected of containing hidden meaning. But in the case of Tolkien, the title pages of his works actually reveal the contents of each book, albeit in code! Using Anglo-Saxon runes and the Angerthas and Tengwar of his own creation, J.R.R. Tolkien created secret messages within the texts of his books and on the title pages of each volume. In this program we will delve into the many mysterious runes used by Tolkien, decipher the Hobbit treasure map, and ferret out the secret messages inscribed upon the title pages of his books.
