MIDDLE EARTH ENVISIONED HOBBIT & LOTR SCREEN STRAGE & BEYOND
Minotaur Code: M0124
ROBB, BRIAN J.
The painstakingly crafted world that J.R.R. Tolkien created for The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion is so vivid that it's easy to briefly imagine Middle-earth as a real place. From the languages spoken and the creatures that peopled it to the wars and cosmology, the richly imagined Middle-earth has left many artists and fans worldwide imagining what it would look and feel like to inhabit such a wildly inspired world. Middle-earth Envisioned is the first book to explore the artistic legacy left by Tolkien's world. Readers will discover details surrounding an attempted Beatles live-action version (with Paul McCartney as Frodo Baggins), a nearly four-hour Canadian musical, the West End stage production of Lord of the Rings, and of course, the Peter Jackson films.
