THE DEFINITIVE TOLKIEN ARTIST Alan Lee is one of the most celebrated living illustrators of myth and fantasy: a recipient of the Kate Greenaway Medal and an Oscar-winner for his conceptual work on Peter Jackson's films of The Lord of the Rings.
His work is synonymous with the worlds of J. Tolkien, having defined the visual setting of Middle-earth for a generation. In 2001, Peter Jackson's film adaptation helped to introduce the epic to an even wider audience, and Alan Lee was the natural choice for a lead concept artist winning him the 2004 Academy Award for Art Direction.The majestic scale of the landscapes and the atmosphere he captures on the page - all in exquisite watercolor and pencil - make him the only choice to illustrate this, the ultimate edition of The Lord of the Rings. Lee's original illustrations have been reproduced to the artist's exacting standards, in a scale and quality never seen before, and have been augmented by several entirely new images, including enchanting endpapers depicting the One Ring long before it came into Frodo's possession, three frontispieces, two revised versions of existing illustrations, a new image titled'The Grey Havens' and an exclusive giclée print. For this edition, Lee has drawn 57 stunning new chapter openers, each one with details appropriate to the chapter: for example, The Council of Elrond, the decorative flourishes flow elegantly, reflecting the grandeur and love of nature of the elves; for The Bridge of Khazad-dûm, the patterns have become geometric and angular, a nod to the steadfast character of the dwarves. As much a celebration of Lee's art as it is of Tolkien's legacy, Folio's The Lord of the Rings is the ultimate edition for any collector. Strictly limited to 1,000 sets, the limitation page has been tipped in by hand and numbered and signed by Alan Lee. Every set comes with a beautiful art print, presented in a translucent Pergamenata paper folder printed with a burgundy design. Furthermore, Lee has designed three intricate roundels for the title pages and six decorative borders to frame the tipped-in illustrations along with a frieze for the slipcase. In The Two Towers, when Samwise Gamgee wonders if their extraordinary journey will become a tale told by the fireside, he imagines the story of the Ring read from'a great big book with red and black letters'; perhaps this grand edition, crafted with such love for the story, is what he pictured.
