Although quite reluctant to take part in this quest, Bilbo surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and his skill as a burglar.J.R.R. Tolkiens great classic work, The Hobbit, celebrated its 60th year of publication (1937) with a gorgeous illustrated edition by artist Alan Lee, winner of the Kate Greenaway medal for illustration, and creator of the fabulously successful Centenary edition of The Lord of the Rings.Containing 22 full colour illustrations depicting key scenes from this all-time classic (scenes such as Gollum and Bilbo, The Wargs, Smaug the Dragon and The Battle of the Five Armies), this beautifully designed volume also includes a wealth of integrated pencil drawings which demonstrate perfectly Lees genius at work.Alan Lees work on this book, as well as the illustrated Lord of the Rings, led to him being approached by Peter Jackson to join the film trilogy as Conceptual Artist.

The same artistic vision, present in his beautiful paintings and drawings, played a major role in the look of the films, and his work received the ultimate accolade with an Academy Award for Best Art Direction on The Return of the King.This is the specially bound and slipcased deluxe edition published to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first publication of The Hobbit in 1937. Page edges have been covered with 22 kt gold.

This extremely scarce collectors edition has been limited to 600 copies, each one signed and numbered by the artist, Alan Lee.Librarians note: an alternate cover editionISBN: 0-261-10330-X
