The author David Day (a Tolkien devotee) has produced an illustrated interpretation of the fantasy world that Tolkien produced as a thoroughly detailed bestiary. This book shows a genealogy of the races of men, elves and free folk of middle-earth and the undying lands, the world that is renown for its part in The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit and the Silmarillion. Detailed descriptions of Balrogs, Dragons, Hobbits, Eagles, and different races of this fantasy world make this bestiary an excellent way to get to grips with Tolkien's life work.
