Alan Lee/John Howe prints? [R]

Just finished watching RotK for the first time in a long time, and actually watched the credits. I assume the sketches are theirs, is there anywhere to buy them? I would love to have pretty much any of them on my wall.

Nice, looks like a great companion to Allan Lee's "The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook" Looks like this one isn't out until November. How did you get an early copy?

Is there any film conceptual artwork for sale? Not necessarily the grandiose fully finished sketches, but maybe where they were sketching out what a few different arches could look like, or different ideas for the breast plate of ork armor might be.

If you don't find what you're looking for, you might try The Lord Of The Rings Sketchbook by Alan Lee. There are lots of pages suitable for framing if you don't mind slicing them out of the book. (you could try to score a used copy)

(Amazon has the feature that lets you look at pages)

Visual/Illustrated companion to the books? [R]

4 years, 12 months agoApril 24, 2015

First time reader of the books here. I've finished The Hobbit and right now I'm up to the Bridge of Khazad-Dum in The Fellowship.

I've been looking up artwork as I go to better visualize middle-earth. Only problem is that it can be tedious to find the scene I'm looking for and I see images from further ahead; scenes that I would rather wait to read first. There is a visual companion book for the movies, but my hope is that there is a book or gallery the puts images from the books in chronological order. Does it exist?

I really like Alan Lee's Lord of the Rings sketchbook

Lee was one of my favorite LotR illustrators long before the movies. The sketchbook does not illustrate everything but it is laid out with chapters named for where they are, and you reach them in the same order as in the book. You should be able to tell where you are without accidentally looking ahead.

For the first one I used a few images from Alan Lee's sketchbook, he's the conceptual artist for LOTR:

The second one is specifically his sketch of Minas Tirith:
