Alan Lee, the beloved illustrator of many of Houghton Mifflin’s Tolkien editions, and a talented team of other artists, including the renowned Tolkien illustrator John Howe, have spent more than three years creating the sets, props, creatures, and locations that truly bring Tolkien’s Middle-earth to life. Hobbiton, Rivendell, and Minas Tirith are no longer designations on the map. Literally hundreds of designers and craftspeople have been painstakingly adding authentic cultural details to each of more than 48,000 separate objects shown in The Fellowship of the Ring, from armor to props to architecture. All this and more is shown in Gary Russell’s lavishly illustrated book. Russell spent time on the set in New Zealand, conducting interviews with director Peter Jackson, special effects guru Richard Taylor, art directors Paul Lasainne, Dan Hennah, and Chris Hennah, costumer Ngila Dickson, and Alan Lee and John Howe. Featuring everything from pencil sketches to the finished objects, his book gives detailed descriptions of why and how this groundbreaking film looks as exciting as it does. The millions of fans dazzled by the results will find here everything they want to know about the genesis and evolution of the movie’s incredible look.

About the Author:

GARY RUSSELL traveled to film production sites in New Zealand to conduct hundreds of exclusive interviews with the principal artists whose work is detailed in this book. The author of The Lord of the Rings: The Art of The Fellowship of the Ring and The Art of the Return of the King, Russell has worked widely in media as a magazine editor, novelist, columnist, and audio drama producer.

From Library Journal:

The third tie-in volume to Peter Jackson's smash film adaptation of the fantasy epic spotlights the hundreds of paintings, sketches, and models used to construct the film's sets, design costumes, build props, and more. Essentially, this is a catalog of roughly 500 striking images of the conceptual art juxtaposed with the finished item used on film, whether it be a house, a cloak, weaponry, or any of the assorted beasties. The book covers all facets of the physical creation of Tolkien's world on film. The illustrations are accompanied with captions written by British writer/editor Russell and based on interviews conducted with the numerous painters, sculptors, costume designers, prop makers, and others responsible for converting the story from page to screen. Because of the price, the film's legions of fans might not want to pop for the book themselves, but they will gladly borrow it, so it's worth the investment. Recommended.
