Reviews for Tolkien: Treasures

'Probably the finest reproduction of Tolkien's art (and maps), published to date. ... the true glory of this book is the illustrations, all of which seem to be ein true colour, often accompanied by enlarged details ... Tolkien: Treasures is definitely worth purchasing.' -- Nancy Martsch * Beyond Bree *
