I have just bought this collectors book and I am very impressed
with it. The pictures are vibrant, the information is detailed,
and the research is evident. It gives the reader a great deal
of information on the books, the toys, the history, and the
upcoming film. I was glad to see that it didn't stop at his
works but delved into the world of figurines as well. It is
a must have for any Tolkien fan or collector.
I found this book to be an extensive resource for Tolkien's
writings, the many publishers and cover artists, the first editions
and the latest available, and the writings you may never heard
of. Seeing the covers of some of the early paperbacks was like
finding long lost friends, the editions I grew up reading. I
also found the sections on the merchandise spawned by the previous
animation features and the new movie trilogy to be very detailed.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in the visual history
of Tolkien's works and the art inspired by them.
This is a Fantastic book for all Tolkien Fans! If you are a
collector this is a MUST! Very well written, excellent pictures
and Easy to use! Includes ISBN# as well as dates of release.
Content includes Tolkien's Books, calendars, figurines, toys,
movies (including the New Release 2001), movie/story on cd/cassettes/records,
