The Lord of the Rings: The Art of the Two Towers

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The definitive guide to the design of the second film in Peter Jackson's trilogy, with over 600 illustrations, including many new pieces exclusive to this edition and an exclusive afterword by Andy Serkis. With complete access to artwork created over a five-year period, this authoritative and insightful book illustrates the creative development of The Two Towers.

This official book contains over 500 exclusive images; from the earliest pencil sketches and conceptual drawings to magnificent paintings that shaped the look of the film. Contributing artists include John Howe and Alan Lee; artists who 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 twelve contributors who explain the background to the images. The book covers most aspects of the eagerly awaited sequel to the enormously successful Fellowship of The Ring, 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.

As well as the wealth of artwork there are also photographs showing the realisation of the creative process and some stills from the film. In addition to considering all the elements that have made it into the film, this book also looks at fascinating ideas, proposals and posters that were, nonetheless, ultimately rejected. 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 the launch of the video and DVD, this is the second of three books in that will become a collectable set to accompany the film trilogy.

Book is in very good condition but with some creasing to the edges of the dustcover.
