A portfolio of over 100 of John Howe’s Tolkien cover, calendar and exhibition paintings, with supporting notes, sketches and photographs by the artist.

Myth and Magic is arranged into six sections, which looks at the books by J R R Tolkien that have inspired John Howe – The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and The History of Middle-earth – and is complemented by a fascinating tour through the paintings that he has produced for some of the finest fantasy authors working today.
