J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator

December 7, 2010 at 8:12 am by admin  - 

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 Many previously unpublished illustrations are included and preliminary sketches show how they developed.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
