Writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley is a foremost expert on The Lord of the Rings (he adapted the novel for the award-winning BBC radio dramatisation in 1980), and here in this clothbound hardback he will take you to all the places Bilbo the Hobbit travelled through on his great adventure, and includes a gazetteer of the many places shown on the full-colour illustrated map which accompanies the book.
Trace Bilbo's epic journey through the forest of Mirkwood to the Enchanted River and the Elvenking's Halls;
Travel through the Desolation of Smaug to the heart of the Lonely Mountain, wherein lives the huge and evil dragon;
Visit Rivendell, home of the Elves, in a hidden valley beyond the Edge of the Wild.
The map is a real labour of love, illustrated by world-renowned Tolkien artist John Howe, the conceptual artist employed by Peter Jackson to work on his multi-award winning Lord of The Rings film trilogy, and who is soon to work on Guillermo del Toro's HOBBIT film.
Each element in this collector's package is special; together they provide an enchanting and desirable artefact that will be a prized possession of Tolkien readers of all ages.
