2.0 out of 5 stars Why is this so bad? :(, 27 Dec. 2003
This review is from: The Map of Tolkien's Middle-Earth (Paperback)
I had hoped, with the purchase of a large map, that it would include LOTS of details (it has the space after all) and would be painted very nicely. Instead the map is surrounded by too large (but nice) paintings and is missing details from smaller maps included with the books.
This leaves large blank areas which are dull to look at (there's no terrain detail here, it's just one bland color with trees on it), no indication of the type of land contained.
It's as if John Howe really didn't care about this project at all :(
Still, what IS there is MUCH easier to read than the small maps included with the books (not least because of it's colorization and that you can reference it quickly without having to mark your page and turn to the back of the book).
Just a shame it wasn't better. A definitive (and prettier) map of Middle Earth is yet to be made :(
