In the eye of the beholder.,
This review is from: A Tolkien Tapestry (Hardcover)
They say that Art is in the eye of the beholder as to what the viewer likes and enjoys. As a huge fan of the pieces that I've seen by Alan Lee as well as Tolkien's own pieces it's always interesting to see what others created to accompany the various scenes. Obviously with the films having been released in modern times many artists will use the beautiful scenes to help create an influence but to see pieces from the sixties as created by Cor Blok was not only fascinating but a new style for me which feels that it's a mish mash of styles from across the centuries which may not appeal to everyone.
Add to this the artist's correspondence with JRR Tolkien himself and it's a title that is fascinating and a coffee table item for fans of the series.
