John Howe Forging Dragons

Kristin Thompson, from The Frodo Franchise reports that John Howe is releasing a new book, titled Forging Dragons.

It contains John’s paintings of dragons, as well as the sketches he made in preparing them and some information on how he did them. There’s even discuss of the mythological background of each dragon. The book’s not due out until October 10, but already Amazon has it available for pre-orders here.

So there you go. A fitting release for the beginning of pre-production of The Hobbit and the preparation of what Guillermo del Toro has described as THE dragon. [The Frodo Franchise]
