Available together for the first time, Tolkien's maps of 'The Hobbit', Beleriend and Middle-earth are beautifully presented in an exquisite boxed set illustrated by John Howe.
Written by the writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley, a foremost expert on 'The Lord Of The Rings' (he adapted the novel for the award-winning BBC radio dramatisation in 1980), this slipcase features Tolkien's maps of 'The Hobbit', Beleriand and Middle-earth, available together for the first time.
Each map is a real labour of love stunningly illustrated by world-renowned Tolkien artist John Howe, the conceptual artist employed by Peter Jackson to work on his $300 million 'Lord Of The Rings' movie trilogy.
The maps, presented with individual books and wallets, are larger than those previously published, showing Tolkien's mythical lands in perfect detail - they are also expertly bound with fewer folds, making them perfect for portfolios or framing.
