Art of the Hobbit
On Thursday 27 October, Harper Collins publishes a 75th anniversary slipcased edition of The Art of the Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. The RRP is £25, but Amazon UK has it on offer for £15.99 with free UK delivery (CLICK). Better still, order it from your local library. Many of Tolkien's illustrations not used in The Hobbit have since been published in previous books and in calendars (CLICK), but the new book includes previously unseen paintings and drawings unearthed in the Bodleian Library in Oxford. More than 100 unseen Tolkien artworks are in the new book, including drawings, maps and plans (title link).
