Synopsis: Available together for the first time, Tolkien's Maps of The Hobbit, Beleriend and Middle-earth are beautifully presented in an exquisite box-set illustrated by John Howe. This special edition includes a unique map of Numenor. Written by the writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley, a foremost expert on The Lord of the Rings (he adapted the novel for the award-winning BBC radio dramatisation in 1980), this slipcase features Tolkien's Maps of The Hobbit, Beleriand and Middle-earth, available together for the first time. Each map is a real labour of love, presented in a box-set stunningly illustrated by world-renowned Tolkien artist John Howe, the conceptual artist employed by Peter Jackson to work on his $300 million Lord of The Rings film trilogy. The maps, presented with individual books and wallets, are larger than those previously published, showing Tolkien's mythical lands in perfect detail - they are also expertly bound with fewer folds, making them perfect for portfolios or framing.
About the Author: BRIAN SIBLEY is a writer and broadcaster with a life-long interest in fantasy books and cinema. His fascination with J. R. R. Tolkien and the myths and history of Middle-earth led to his critically-acclaimed BBC radio dramatisation of The Lord of the Rings in which the role of Frodo was played by Ian Holm, who now portrays Bilbo in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Brian's subsequent radio dramas included several of Tolkien's short novels collected under the title Tales from the Perilous Realm, C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia, two series of Tales of the Bizarre by Ray Bradbury and Mervyn Peake's Titus Groan and Gormenghast which won him the prestigious Sony Radio Award. His books include Three Cheers for Pooh, Chicken Run: Hatching the Movie, Cracking Animation, The Disney Studio Story, The Land of Narnia and Shadowlands, as well as the text accompanying three maps by John Howe based on Tolkien's The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. Brian is currently writing an in-depth account of the making of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Trilogy for future publication.
