This collection of pictures, with a revised text by Christopher Tolkien, provides an insight into Tolkien's visual conception of many of the places and characters familiar to readers of such books as "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Silmarillion". Examples of his art range from delicate watercolours depicting Rivendell, the Forest of Lothlorien, Smaug and Old Man Willow to drawings and sketches of Moira Gate and Minas Tirith.
