9780061055324: Realms of Tolkien: Images of Middle-Earth

Following the success of "Tolkien's World," this new collection of shining illustrations inspired by the work of J.R.R. Tolkien is as beautiful and unique as its predecessor. This breathtaking four-color volume is designed in a deluxe, oversized format, and includes paintings from a diverse group of international artists. Each picture is accompanied by text from the relevant passage in Tolkien's fiction as well as a personal statement by the artist about the inspiration and influence J.R.R. Tolkien has had on their work. Includes works by an electric group of artists, both famous and up-and-coming: Alan Lee, renowned for his atmospheric interpretations of folklore and legend, as well as his stunning illustrations for "The Lord of the Rings" John Howe, creator of many Tolkien book covers and acclaimed for his powerful representations of the landscapes and peoples of Middle-earth Ted Nasmith, known for his classically accurate and dramatic pictures Inger Edelfeldt, illustrator of many beautiful and unusual Tolkien calendars, book covers and posters.

From the Back Cover:

J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle – earth, created in his classic works 'The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion', has for more than half a century inspired artists around the world. 'Realms of Tolkien 'is a celebration of Tolkien's imagination and the ingenuity of artists like Alan Lee, John Howe and Ted Nasmith who choose to realise his fantasy – every one of the 58 paintings offers a unique interpretation of Tolkien's realm, while retaining that familiar quality that makes it undeniably 'Tolkien'. Twenty new and familiar Tolkien artists are represented in this fabulous volume, breathing an extraordinary variety of life into 58 different scenes, each of which is accompanied by the appropriate passage from 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings'.

About the Author:

Alan Lee has illustrated The Lord of the Rings and is currently working on the illustration of The Hobbit. John Howe has illustrated many Tolkien covers, including the whole series of ‘The History of Middle-earth’. Ted Nasmith and Inger Idelfeldt have both produced illustrations for Tolkien Calendars, posters and book covers.
