Unpaginated. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. LITERATURE. The fantastical world of J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth is a land of rugged valleys and strange gothic forests inhabited by wizards and goblins. This world comes to life within the vast vaults of our imagination--and it may unnerve devotees of The Hobbit, Silmarillion, and The Lord of the Rings to physically encounter this world in paint and paper. Can the full evilness of Smaug, that demon of jaws and fire, ever be reproduced in a picture? Thankfully and reassuringly, Tolkien's World does not denigrate our very personal conceptions of this place in any way. An array of talented artists conjure up brilliant images on canvas, inspired by specific passages from the texts. (Key Words: Literature, Art, J. R. R. Tolkien, Inger Edelfeld).
