    Here is the deluxe edition of The Art of the Lord of the Rings published by HarperCollins in 2015, with the help of the Tolkien scholars Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull.


    "As J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings, his mental pictures often found expression in drawing, from rough sketches made within the manuscript to more finished illustrations. Only a few of these were meant for publication; most were aids to help Tolkien conceive his complex story and keep it consistent. Many do not illustrate the final text, but represent moments of creation, illuminating Tolkien’s process of writing and design. In addition to pictorial sketches, numerous maps follow the development of the Shire and the larger landscape of Middle-earth, while inscriptions in runes and Elvish script, and facsimile’ leaves from the burned and blood-stained Book of Mazarbul, support Tolkien’s pose as an editor’ or translator’ of ancient records."

    The Art of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien collects these drawings, inscriptions, maps, and plans in one deluxe volume. More than 180 images are included, all of them printed in colour from high-quality scans and photographs, more than half not previously published. Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull, two of the world’s leading Tolkien scholars, have edited the book and provide an expert introduction and comments. Readers who have enjoyed The Art of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, with which the new book is uniform, will find much of interest also in The Art of The Lord of the Rings." [1]


    The book is bound in paper with acid-free, glossy and very white paper. It's smyth-sewn and has a green headband.
    The endpapers are completely white but the quality of the paper is good and the printings are of great quality.
    The slipcase is also of good quality but it can damage the book because it's a little bit too tight.


    The book contains an introduction from Scull and Hammond. It's 239 pages long. It has more than 180 drawings, maps and sketches by Tolkien.
