A house fit for a Hobbit

Architect Peter Archer has designed a "Hobbit House" containing a world-class collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and memorabilia. A Delaware cabinet-maker built the mahogany windows, including the large arched "butterfly window" — its Art Nouveau-ish flourishes inspired by Tolkien's own drawings. The name comes from the window's appearance when open, with the two halves pushed outward from a center hinge. The roof is covered with clay tiles handmade in France. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke)
