Artists the world over have endeavored to capture the essence of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle–earth: the passion and heroism of the characters, the heart–stopping drama of the action, the mythic grandeur of Middle–earth itself. Few have succeeded. Pre–eminent among those who have is John Howe. Now, in Myth and Magic, which features 250 of his paintings and sketches, we are offered a splendid gallery of his work, including all the Tolkien pieces as well as a selection of his other fantasy paintings. From the beloved picture of “Smaug” that adorns The Hobbit to the spectacular images that appear on best–selling novels, this collection will delight both Tolkien fans and all who have been captivated by one of the finest fantasy artists in the world.About the Author:
