Worth owning, if you're a Tolkien fan (sadly, I only borrowed it). It's full of reproductions of beautiful paintings. Not all of them capture my vision of Middle-earth, which is always a danger, but a surprising number of them do. Alan Lee's probably my favourite Middle-earth artist, but I liked Ted Nasmith, John Howe and Roger Garland most. Nobody quite gets hobbits just right, for me, though...

Includes mostly paintings of Middle-earth -- The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, and The Lord of the Rings -- but also one of Smith of Wootton Major.
