Hark! You have found my art dwelling! Sorry it's such a mess...Maybe if you had told me you were coming I could have cleaned up the place. Jeez. Tea?

A peek inside The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles!

I can’t begin to explain how beautiful this book looks so far.

These kinds of art books are so incredibly important. We all get to see the exciting and polished product that is The Hobbit in theatres, but we don’t often get to really look at the artwork that helped craft the final version.  And when I say look, I mean really LOOK. For example when I saw the Goblin King, in all his grotesqueness and glutinous glory, I wanted to just stare and examine all of ew that he encompassed! But the movie must move forward. Sometimes that pace doesn’t leave me enough time to see all that I want.

Thus this book! I can’t wait to be able to fully sit down with it and give it the attention it deserves…

Just in time before I begin my own adventure. C:
