I will admit that I bought this book on a whim but I'm glad that I did.
This is not just a beautiful book, but also very informative about Tolkien's illustrations and sketches, and the history of publication of his major works.
Any Tolkien fan will appreciate this fine book, and any interested fan of the Hobbit in specific, will likely be interested as well.
This book is absolutely beautiful. The handdrawn illustrations really bring to life the ideas that Tolkien had when he wrote The Hobbit. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Jameson

Information was good but it was not what I thought is was going to be. It was more of a picture book than a book to spend time reading.Published 9 months ago by Delpha Bennett
As a kid who grew up with these stories, this is a lot of fun to have around. Found some images I remembered from a long time ago that I haven't seen anywhere else.Published 9 months ago by Otter
