Peter Jackson himself provides the Afterword in which he discuss the importance of the conceptual art to the film. The book covers most aspects of the eagerly awaited finale to the enormously successful trilogy, from locations and costumes to weaponry and creatures. The artists who created all of these diverse elements explain how they contributed to the development of the film. Printed on high-quality art paper this lavish book is ideal for Tolkien collectors and film enthusiasts. It also makes a superb gift. Published to tie-in with release of the film, this the last of three books will complete a fascinating and truly collectable set to accompany the film trilogy. There are some bumps to the cover and the dust jacket is acceptable, but internally a very nice and clean copy.
