The Lord of the Rings Complete Visual Companion includes all of the information from The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King visual companions, but with updated photos from the extended versions of the films. There are several new sections in this complete omnibus edition, including the Corsairs of Umbar, the crowning of King Elessar, and the Grey Havens. This is definitely a fun and enjoyable read for any fan of Middle Earth, whether young or old!

Initial thoughts:

1. Very comprehensive and reader-friendly.
2. Some pictures are (a) blurry, (b), have so much noise, and (c) in low-res.
3. Too brief for such an epic.
4. Some parts of the individual visual companion for each part of the trilogy are omitted in this bind-up edition.
5. Overall, it's not bad, but not great either. Still worthy as a collection for an LOTR fan.

What a fun, beautiful read! The book is full of still photos of the happenings in the movie, but is combined with information from the books. I thought it was put together in the best organized way. I even sketched one of the pictures of Gandalf. I'm sure I'll be drawing more from the pictures in the book.
This is a movie trilogy full of hotties, and this book showcases all the amazingly beautiful people in the cast.
Filled with lots of beautiful pictures from the movie.
