5.0 out of 5 stars A set of books to compliment 'The Hobbit' and the make up and design teams, 27 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Weta Film Chronicles (Two book set) (Hardcover)
This set was purchased on Amazon 'Black Friday' in the run up to Christmas 2013, originally retailing at about £40 prior to the day, this set was obtained at about half price, and it is certainly not a set of books I would have considered purchasing otherwise.
The books are lavishly created and there is a huge amount of detail in here regarding the workshops, make up departments, set designers and background to all the sets used in the film. One book covers the sets themselves and backdrops, sets and photo art. The other covers creatures and characters including background and concept, not only is this a great set of two books which compliment the series totally, but has a lot of factual information including maps and other reference information.
They are wide books but not tall, and the covers and back are beautifully done, they would compliment any bookcase or set of other Lord of Rings/Hobbit reference guides. These are not stories, but contain just factual information into the work that was put into bringing the film to life and the amount of work put in by the relevant workshops.
Artwork and pictures in the two volumes are detailed, lavish in colour and depth and well detailed, information is well laid out and factual.

In summary:
These are a worthy purchase and a good investment, highly recommended for fans of the series / movies.

Love these books :)

They are amazingly detailed, the photos are gorgeous and stunning, the in depth detail is amazing. I am happy I managed to get them in the sale for a great price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Books, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Weta Film Chronicles (Two book set) (Hardcover)
Whilst the films themselves aren't as good as the LOTR trilogy, the artwork and concept sketches in these are so rich and rewarding, they're a goldmine for any Middle Earth enthusiast.
