Tolkien Diary 2008: The Children of Húrin: The "Children of Hurin"

9780007257942: Tolkien Diary 2008: The Children of Húrin: The

The annual Tolkien diary, this year containing a haunting collection of watercolours and pencil sketches by acclaimed and Oscar-winning Tolkien artist, Alan Lee, from the newly published ‘The Children of Hurin’, J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic tale of adventure set in Middle-earth.

This year's Tolkien diary is more sumptuous than ever, and is not only illustrated by the acclaimed and Oscar-winning Tolkien artist Alan Lee, it has been designed by him, too, with the same care and attention to detail that has seen his work embraced by the Tolkien Estate, Peter Jackson and discerning fans around the world. The content itself is particularly special, as it is inspired by a Tolkien work that is seeing print in its complete form for the very first time.

To accompany each watercolour painting from ‘The Children of Hurin’, the newly published epic tale of adventure by J.R.R. Tolkien, every month features complementary pencil drawings selected by Alan and there are also brand new sketches produced exclusively for this calendar.

Alan Lee has depicted famous scenes including Gollum and Bilbo, Rivendell and Smaug the Dragon in his celebrated illustrated editions of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’, but with these brand new paintings and drawings he will take the reader deeper into the enchanting world of Middle-earth than ever before.

Review:

‘Alan Lee’s artwork has a beauty and lyricism about it. His art captured what I hoped to capture with the films.’ Peter Jackson
