Alan Lee Book Tour!

July 29, 2005 at 1:08 pm by xoanon  - 

Houghton Mifflin will be sending Alan Lee, acclaimed LOTR illustrator and Academy Award-winning conceptual designer for the film trilogy, on a U.S. tour this October to discuss his brand-new book, THE LORD OF THE RINGS SKETCHBOOK. The book presents more than 150 of Lee’s celebrated illustrations to show how his imagery for both the illustrated Lord of the Rings and the films progressed from concept to finished art. In addition, the book contains 20 full-color plates and numerous examples of the conceptual art produced for Peter Jackson’s film adaptation. Lee’s events will feature a slide show, a Q&A with fans, and a booksigning.
