The Art of Tolkien

The Art of the Hobbit
Blastr has an article on sketches that the late Professor Tolkien had drawn for his novel, The Hobbit. The sketches were found in the archive at Bodleian library in Oxford while publisher Harper Collins were busy putting together their upcoming 75th Anniversary edition. More than 100 sketches were found, most of which have never been seen by the public.

The artwork has been collected into a book, The Art of the Hobbit, which comes out today.
