John Howe's "Middle-earth Traveler'

Postby Straelbora » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:56 am

Has anyone else picked up John Howe's "Middle-earth Traveler: Sketches from Bag End to Mordor?"

If you like Howe's work (as one of the main conceptual artists of the Peter Jackson films), you'll love this. It's got a lot of pencil sketches, as well as full-color prints.

There are some gems I haven't seen before, like sketches of the interior of a 'typical Hobbit home' and his imaginings of dwellings in Far Harad.

If you've got a Dwarf persona that is inspired by the aesthetic established in the films, there's a two page splash of "Dwarven craft," featuring dozens of lanterns, pipes, costrels, and tools. And another featuring weapons. (If $30 for the book is outside your budget and you'd like to see these to contribute to your kit, PM me and I'll scan the pages to you).

She can receive pm messages but you need to remember the time difference between here and the UK. Give her a day or so and unless her mailbox is full, she'll respond.

OK. It's been 36 hours, so I wasn't sure.

I've never had a reason to PM anyone here before so my mail box is empty and I have no idea if it works? I haven't received anything but you must have received mine so I'll send you my e-mail, hopefully that will work :P
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.
