When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote HOBBIT he had become an accomplished amateur artist, and he was keen to contribute visually to the work. The finished book contained eight black and white drawings, five colour plates, two maps and his own jacket design. But behind these finished works there also lay a multitude of sketches and drawings, draft maps and runic designs, demonstrating Tolkien's careful planning and artistry. Indeed, every major artist who has illustrated the book subsequently has been influenced by Tolkien's own powerful visual conceptions.THE ART OF THE HOBBITcollects for the first time the complete surviving artwork that helped to underpin such a remarkable work of fiction. Written and edited by Tolkien experts Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull, authors of the acclaimed biographyTOLKIEN: ARTIST AND ILLUSTRATORthis book uses brand new digital scans from the Bodleian Library in Oxford to show off Tolkien's paintings in more vivid detail than ever before, making this a worthy and lasting tribute to a largely overlooked side of Tolkien's genius.

The Dragon Ouroboros Illustrated

Author: Eric Rücker Eddison
Publisher: Leaves of Gold Press
ISBN: 0987555456
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Fantasy fiction

TOLKIEN'S BOOKSHELF #7: THE DRAGON OUROBOROS 'The Dragon Ouroboros' was first published in 1933 under the title 'The Worm Ouroboros'. J.R.R. Tolkien read the story, and praised it in print, writing in a letter that he enjoyed Eddison's books 'for their sheer literary merit'. Eddison, he stated, was 'the greatest and most convincing writer of "invented worlds"' he had ever read. Tolkien's close friend and confidante C.S. Lewis was also an admirer, opining that 'no writer can be said to remind us of Eddison'. This heroic high fantasy novel is often compared with Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings', which was written many years later. Readers will swiftly become accustomed to Eddison's archaic language and find themselves swept away by the imagery, which is frequently beautiful. It is easy to see why Tolkien was impressed with Eddison's unusual, sprawling and imaginative work, a literary predecessor to The Lord of the Rings.
