Product description

Synopsis

For the first time ever, a portfolio of illustrated work from the award-winning artist, John Howe, which reveals the breathtaking vision of one of the foremost fantasy artists in the world. Myth and Magic is arranged into six sections, which looks at the books by J R R Tolkien that have inspired John - The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and The History of Middle-earth - and is complemented by a fascinating tour through the paintings that he has produced for some of the finest fantasy authors working today. From the beloved painting of Smaug which decorates The Hobbit, his numerous and bestselling calendar illustrations, the world famous "Gandalf" picture, which is synonymous with the HarperCollins one-volume edition of The Lord of the Rings, this large-format hardback will delight fans of Tolkien, and anyone who has been captured by the imagination of the artist who so brilliantly brings to life the literary vision of J R R Tolkien.

About the Author

John Howe was born in 1957 in Vancouver, Canada. He moved to France in 1976 and gained a Diploma in Illustration at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs de Strasbourg in 1981. He has illustrated many French children’s books, but is best known for his Tolkien calendars, book jackets, maps and posters. In 1998 he spent over a year in New Zealand working as Conceptual Artist on Peter Jackson’s acclaimed The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. In 2009 he returned to New Zealand to work on the two parts of The Hobbit movie: An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again.
