5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing piece of ART from WETA - a must for Peter Jackson's Hobbit fans!, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chronicles: Art & Design (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) (Hardcover)
I have only recently become a fan of Peter Jackson's LOTR movies and tried to purchase all the movie books that covered the making of these magnificient films. I have now a collection of all the Movie Guides and Visual Companions (more than 20 books), but these Hobbit CHRONICLES are far-far better than any of the other previously published books in design, content, and artistic value! They are amazingly well illustrated with original pieces of art, and hundreds of illustrations telling us the story how characters and places were designed. It's amazing, how much effort was put into these books. It's not just some cutscenes from the films, but rather tons of original concept art which shows the development of the look and design much more depth than any of the official movie guides. I have also bought the other 2 Hobbit Chronicle books from Weta, which are equally amazing, and they do not repeat, but rather complement oneanother. This one has the prop replica " The Map of Thorin Oakenshield" as an extra with it, and a smaller scale of Bilbo's contract from the dwarves. These chronicles all far exceeded my expectations in content and beauty, and take movie companion books to the next level. It's an absolute MUST for any fan of Peter Jackson's Hobbit. Published by the WETA Workshop, it's absolutely outstanding, like everything they did related to these films. Well worth the investment!
