Category: middle earth

Had a flip through this one at the bookstore the other day: A Middle-earth Traveler: Sketches from Bag End to Mordor. The book is illustrated by John Howe, who worked as a production designer on the Peter Jackson films, and offers a spectacular insight into his artistic vision of Middle-earth. Would highly recommend to any Tolkien fans, regardless of whether they prefer the books, the movies, or both.

Sauron’s power was in the one ring. Frodo threw the ring into lava. Now Sauron’s power is infused into the geological body of middle earth. That was his plan all along. So obvious.
