Product description

From the Back Cover

A heavily-illustrated behind-the-scenes guide to the second film, featuring colour photos of the cast, locations, sets, monsters and costumes, and an overview of the making of the film trilogy over the last five years. Designed as a celebration of the films, it will include double-page photo spreads showing exclusive photographs in sumptuous detail.

Written by the writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley, a foremost expert on The Lord of the Rings (he adapted the novel for the award-winning BBC radio dramatisation in 1980), the book will include new material from Peter Jackson’s latest blockbuster, The Two Towers.

About the Author

BRIAN SIBLEY is a writer and broadcaster with a life-long interest in fantasy books and cinema. His fascination with J. R. R. Tolkien and the myths and history of Middle-earth led to his critically-acclaimed BBC radio dramatisation of The Lord of the Rings in which the role of Frodo was played by Ian Holm, who now portrays Bilbo in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Brian’s subsequent radio dramas included several of Tolkien’s short novels collected under the title Tales from the Perilous Realm, C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia, two series of Tales of the Bizarre by Ray Bradbury and Mervyn Peake’s Titus Groan and Gormenghast which won him the prestigious Sony Radio Award. His books include Three Cheers for Pooh, Chicken Run: Hatching the Movie, Cracking Animation, The Disney Studio Story, The Land of Narnia and Shadowlands, as well as the text accompanying three maps by John Howe based on Tolkien’s The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. Brian is currently writing an in-depth account of the making of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings Trilogy for future publication.
