  J.R.R.Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator  Wayne Hammond (Editor) Christina Scull (Editor) J.R.R. Tolkien (Illustrator) 
  This is a book you simply must buy, borrow, or sit-on-the-floor-in-the-book store-and-read if you are a fan (or fanatic) of Tolkien’s. Included here are over 200 reproductions of his paintings, drawings, and sketches using inks, washes, watercolours, and pencils.
   Tolkien was not only a brilliant writer but an exceptionally talented artist as well. These illustrations are your invitation into his personal Pensieve; where you’ll view the worlds he invented as he actually imagined them. The accompanying commentaries and analyses by one of the world’s foremost Tolkien experts develops a context in which to examine the landscape of Middle-earth in ways previously unimagined. (I sound as if I’m getting royalties from this book, ha. I wish)
    You can buy this book here (USA) for $16.50 used (the new copy is $130.00) or here in the UK NEW for £17.50.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise to me that Tolkien was also an illustrator. Might as well throw that one into the bag.
