Previously-Unseen ‘The Hobbit’ Drawings By J.R.R Tolkien
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit, publishing house HarperCollins has produced a covetable collection of 110 original illustrations—’The Art of the Hobbit’—by J.R.R. Tolkien, of which two dozens have never been published before.
These rare drawings—which range from pencil sketches and ink line drawings to watercolors—were uncovered at the writer’s archives at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and only recently digitized.
While the published version of the children’s classic consisted only of 20 illustrations by its author, Tolkien had actually made more than a hundred pictures to help bring his legendary story to life.
Tolkien was able to draw.
When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit, he was already an accomplished amateur artist, and drew illustrations for his book while it was still in manuscript. The Hobbit as first printed had ten black-and-white pictures, two maps, and binding and dust jacket designs by its author. Later, Tolkien also painted five scenes for color plates, which comprise some of his best work. His illustrations for The Hobbit add an extra dimension to that remarkable book, and have long influenced how readers imagine Bilbo Baggins and his world.
I have found The Art of The Hobbit book here in Amazon. Some of these images are published here for the first time, others for the first time in color, allowing Tolkien’s Hobbit pictures to be seen completely and more vividly than ever before.
