Description

The official Tolkien calendar, this year containing twelve stunning paintings inspired by the stories collected in UNFINISHED TALES by J.R.R. Tolkien. Three of the world's finest Tolkien artists present the Three Ages of Middle-earth in breathtaking glory. The official Tolkien calendar has become an established publishing event, eagerly anticipated by Tolkien fans the world over. Previous Tolkien calendars have become much sought after collector's items, and this year's will doubtless be an essential purchase for Middle-earth fans everywhere, as it celebrates the 40th anniversary of UNFINISHED TALES. To commemorate this special occasion three of the world's finest Tolkien artists - Ted Nasmith, John Howe, and Alan Lee - have each contributed four full-colour artworks to the Calendar. To accompany each painting, every month features complementary pencil drawings or sketches selected by the artists which are exclusive to this calendar. In this unique artistic combination, Alan, John and Ted present scenes from the First Age of THE SILMARILLION, the Second Age of Numenor and the fall of Sauron, and the Third Age of THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS, which take the reader deeper into the world of Middle-earth than ever before.

Author Biography

John Howe was born in 1957 in Vancouver, Canada. He is best known for his Tolkien calendars, book jackets, maps and posters. He worked as Conceptual Artist on Peter Jackson's acclaimed The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Ted Nasmith is a freelance illustrator living just outside Toronto, Canada. The works of Tolkien have had a profound effect on him and he has enjoyed the challenge of interpreting the world of Tolkien for over twenty years. He has produced several Tolkien Calendars and was commissioned to illustrate The Silmarillion; his illustrations have also appeared in The Complete Guide to Middle-earth. Alan Lee is the creator of the highly successful illustrated edition of The Lord of the Rings, and winner of the 1994 Kate Greenaway Medal for Children's Book Illustration. He worked on Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, and later on The Hobbit films, winning an Oscar for his work on Return of the King.
