The Tolkien desk diary for 2007 features 13 paintings and illustrations by Alan Lee and is more sumptuous than ever. It is not only illustrated by the acclaimed and Oscar-winning "Tolkien" artist, but it has been designed by him as well. To accompany each watercolour, every month features complementary line drawings selected by Alan from his "Lord of the Rings Sketchbook," and there are also brand new sketches produced exclusively for this diary. Alan Lee has depicted famous scenes, including Gollum and Bilbo, Rivendell and Smaug the Dragon, but these new pencil drawings will take the reader deeper into the enchanting world of Middle-earth than ever before.
