TBR Thursday: The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook by Alan Lee

To be Read Thursday meme is hosted by Drea which was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Breaking the Spine

TBR Thursday highlights all those book that are already about (whether you own them or not) that you're dying to ready but haven't had the chance yet. This can some old books, some new books, and some that are in between but they have to be books that you want/hope to read and review!

Alan Lee, the Oscar-winning conceptual designer for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, discusses his approach to depicting Tolkien’s imaginary world. The book presents more than 150 of Lee’s celebrated illustrations to show how his imagery for both the illustrated Lord of the Rings and the films progressed from concept to finished art. In addition, the book contains 20 full-color plates and numerous examples of the conceptual art produced for Peter Jackson’s film adaptation.
The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook provides a wealth of background information and will be of interest to those who know and love Tolkien’s work, from books to films to DVDs, as well as to budding artists and illustrators interested in how to approach book illustration.
