A lovely collection of illustrations of Tolkien's work from various artists. Each artist has a page at the end to tell of themselves and their inspirations. Nice addition to my Tolkien shelf. ( )

A staggering amount of artwork has been inspired and based upon J.R.R. Tolkien's writing, so I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been to pick just a few dozen to put in this collection. Included are pieces depicting scenes from many of his books, mostly 'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings', and 'The Silmarillion', each with a short excerpt from the appropriate text. Many styles, from realism to expresionism, are present, showing many different representations of our favorite characters. I cannot say I like all of them, but none are lacking skill and passion. These artists clearly love their subject, and that counts for a lot in my book. I just would have liked to see more dwarves. Peace. ( )
