The Art of The Fellowship of the Ring

(2002)
A non fiction book by

 
 
With complete access to artwork created over a five-year period, this book illustrates the creative development of the movie "The Fellowship of the Ring". This official book contains over 500 images: from the earliest pencil sketches and conceptual drawings to paintings that shaped the look of the film. Contributing artists include John Howe and Alan Lee; artists that have inspired Peter Jackson's vision of Middle-earth and worked with him to bring the trilogy to the big screen. Peter Jackson is among 12 contributors who explain the background to the images. The book covers the opening sequence, locations, costumes, armoury and creatures. The artists who created these diverse elements explain how they contributed to the development of the film. There are also photographs showing the realisation of the creative process and some stills from the film. This book also looks at ideas, proposals and posters that were, nonetheless, ultimately rejected. Printed on high-quality art paper this book should appeal to Tolkien collectors and film enthusiasts. Published to tie-in with the launch of the video and DVD, this is the first of three books that will complete a set to accompany the film trilogy.
