All I can say about this book is WOW! Just a stunning look at how the movies where made. Daniel Falconer has done a fantastic job in his research to bring this book to life.
He covers everything from the original storyboards, to the different ways the movies were filmed over the fifteen years it took to make the films. There’s a lot of interviews with the people behind the scenes that brought the massive movies to life. And the pictures are breathtaking. There are some many stunning looks at everything involved with Tolkien and his Hobbit world. THe book also has a forward from Peter Jackson, the man in charge of the movie franchise.
I know this may seem like a very short review (which it is). Words cannot describe how awesome this book is. And it must weigh about 5 pounds, it’s heavy!
If you’re a fan of the series or know someone that is, you have the perfect holiday present for them! It’s in stores on Tuesday, November 21st.
