Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

Realms of Tolkien includes paintings by many of the well-known interpretors of Tolkien's world: Alan Lee, renowned for his atmospheric interpretations of folklore and legend, and of course for his stunning illustrations for The Lord of the Rings; John Howe's powerful representations of the landscapes and peoples of Middle-earth; Ted Nasmith's classically accurate and dramatic pictures; and Inger Edelfeldt's beautiful and unusual illustrations. This exciting new collection also features many talented amateur artists from all around the globe, demonstrating the wealth and variety of artwork that the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien have inspired, including the Dutch artist Cor Blok, whose work was much admired by Tolkien himself. In full colour throughout, Realms of Tolkien is a perfect gift book for Tolkien fans of all ages, and a work of art in itself. Each picture is accompanied by a page of text from the relevant passage in Tolkien's fiction, describing the scene the artist has chosen to depict. Also included is a short piece about each artist describing the influence of Tolkien on their life and work.
