From School Library Journal
YA?A fascinating glimpse into the life of the writer and artist. Over 200 reproductions of Tolkien's paintings, drawings, and sketches fill this engaging title. Basically arranged chronologically into six sections, the book explores the man's early work; visions, myths, and legends; art for children; The Hobbit; "The Lord of the Rings"; and patterns and devices. In a readable style, Hammond and Scull weave their subject's writing career with his love of art. Tolkien's use of inks, washes, watercolors, and pencil is examined. Many previously unpublished illustrations are included and preliminary sketches show how they developed. Excerpted text shows the art within the context of its completed work.?John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

Along with maps, Tolkien self-illustrated many of his works, and a large portion of his artwork is included in this volume with comment by the authors.

He did art too.
YES! AWESOME ART! While he never trained professionally as an artist, it ran like a quiet river through his life. Here are collected wonderful watercolors, ink sketches, landscapes, places that no longer exist, places (Middle-earth) that only existed in Tolkien's fervent imagination, and other goodies. Not to be missed by any fan of the Professor's work.
