Tolkien, artist

Happiness is a Book

So in spite of my sorrow over friendships dashed, I got to the shop today to find that my book had been delivered yesterday.  That makes me quite happy.  So I'm diving into the wonderful imagery of Donato Giancola.  


Do I really have to work today? I'd much rather just look at wonderful pictures.  I really couldn't afford this, but I'm not regretting my purchase at all.

Isn't it lovely? I knew you'd like it! :^) And I am so glad that you feel it was worth the money.
It is more than lovely. I'm sitting here studying his lines, his shading, this is not only appealing to me as a lover of Middle Earth, but also on an artistic level. I'll have to share this with my DH, he adores art book also. The problem is, when I share it with him, it will somehow disappear from my side of the room and end up on his side. I won't allow that to happen, so we'll argue about it a bit :-)

It is quite extraordinary. All pictures and minimal text. Wonderful! And, for an art book, quite inexpensive.

It is marvelous. He does light and form so very well, working within the descriptive constraints that Tolkien places on all of us but having characters that are very individual. His Legolas and Frodo are just excellent.

It's phenomenal, Spiced. I'm not regretting this purchase one little bit!

I'm not an Amazon fan, being in love with Barnes & Noble instead, but it is worth it no matter where you buy it. It's very nicely done and all color plates. Minimal text, maximal art - just the way that an art book should be.
