5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition for the collector and newbie alike, January 10, 2004
This review is from: Maps of Middle Earth: The Lord of the Rings Map Set (Paperback)
Amidst the loads of movie merchandise generated by the Lord of the Rings movies, this is one item in particular that stands above the rest as a spectacular edition to both the movies and the books. Included are six wonderfully large maps of the different regions of Middle-Earth, including the vast plains of Rohan and its adjoining lands, the dark land Mordor, the northern wilds of Eregion (the lands that lie west of the Shire, including Bree, Weathertop, the Trollshaws, Rivendell, Hollin, Caradhras, Moria and Lothlórien), two maps to show both West and East Gondor, and a highly-detailed map of the four farthings of the Shire.
Each map is highly detailed, and looks quite similar to the ones drawn for the Lord of the Rings books. The maps (if you succeed in making the creases in them disappear) are high quality, and worthy of framing if you want.
There is also an excellent 32-page book that takes you over each region included on each map, examining its importance to the Fellowship's Quest, and to the history of Middle-Earth in general. The book includes all six maps shrunk down to page-size in the back, a general map of Middle-Earth on the back cover, and an index for location reference.
Cheers to Daniel Reeve and crew for their excellent calligraphy work as well as research and planning. This set is a perfect compliment to the books. For those who enjoyed the movies and want to learn more, for those of you who want to brush up on some Tolkien knowledge so your well-versed friends won't have such an edge on you, and for Tolkien fans everywhere, you will love this set.
