A must-have for all LOTR fans,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook: Portfolio (Hardcover)
I ordered the book and it took two days to come, which was a nice surprise. I already have 'The Hobbit Chronicles' as I'm a big fan of both, the latter and the LOTR trilogy.
I am an art student and for me the book is a great showcase of the work by Alan Lee. I love the way that all kinds of sketches were included here, so not just persons, elves or orcs, but also hobbit houses, utensils, armour, Mordor, Isengard, treebeard and much more. I don't just love this book because I study drawing and the level of the drawings by Alan Lee are mind blowing, but also because it serves like a visual continuation between the LOTR novel and films.
If you loved the art on the films, you will undoubtedly love this book! You won't regret it!
