Inhaltsangabe zu „Myth and Magic“ von John Howe

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, as well as 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.

    Ein wunderschöner Bildband mit den Gemälden von John Howe, der als Maler zu Tolkiens Werken (insbes. Herr der Ringe) bekannt wurde. Es hat ein Vorwort von Peter Jackson (Regisseur der Trilogie) und diverse Anmerkungen zu den Bildern von Howe selbst. Wer den Herrn der Ringe liebt, kommt an diesem wunderschönen, liebevoll gestaltetem Bildband nicht vorbei!
