From the world of Aratta and Mohenjo-Daro to Atlantis and Camelot, this visually stunning book is a window with a view that takes readers on an historical, archaeological, and mythological journey through lost worlds, those abandoned in time, buried and forgotten, and the ones that live in the imagination. Attempting to put the most plausible pieces of history together, John Howe, concept artist for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, begins the journey that will move readers to explore these lost worlds even further.

About the Author:

John Howe is best known for his work based on JRR Tolkien's worlds. He was one of two lead artists working on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. This is his first book for children.

Review:

“Bringing his experience as a concept artist for the filmed Lord of the Rings (Gandalf-er, Ian McKellan even provides an introduction) to bear, [Howe] depicts each featured locale at its height with handsome, dramatic painted tableaux and expert pencil sketches. Like Dugald Steer's Explorer: A Daring Guide for Young Adventurers (2007), this will be just the ticket for armchair travel.” ―Booklist

“Howe presents documented fact, accepted theory, and traditional story, distinguishing among them. The text is supported by well-chosen photos of artifacts and reproductions of art, and of course, Howe's sumptuous, panoramic paintings.” ―School Library Journal

“A beautiful blend of fact and fantasy... A great tool to teach descriptive writing or to study lost worlds.” ―Library Media Connection

“[Howe's] immense talent draws readers in and keeps them spellbound. Beautful, clever, and sure to be the source of many idle daydreams to come.” ―San Antonio Book Review

“This book is spectacular. The illustrations are out of this world and the background behind each of the lost worlds is eye-opening. Visually stunning. If you love to learn about a combination of history and fantasy, you will enjoy this book immensely.” ―Bookworming in the 21st Century

“Rich and stunning illustrations take you on a historical, archaeological, and mythological journey to far off lands abandoned in time. You'll find yourself flipping through these worlds over and over.” ―Boys Read
