"[T]he true source of wisdom for all things carnal in Dol Amroth [...]"
- Faramir, Passages

Probably Harad's most popular literary export, The Garden of Love is an illustrated manual of sexual positions and techniques, "with explicit instructions to go with the pictures."[1] One of the more celebrated editions was illustrated by one Hyandhil, renowned for his capacity to render flesh tones.[2]

Known holders of copies include the Princes of Dol Amroth[3] and Mablung of Ithilien.[4] It is unknown whether the library of Minas Tirith lacks a copy or whether Boromir and Faramir were merely too concerned to be caught with it by their father.[5]
