From the blurb "This book explores tolkien's art at length, from his childhood paintings and drawings to his final sketches.
At its heart are his illustrations for his books, especially his tales of Middle-Earth.
Also examined are the pictures Tolkien made for his children (notably in his 'Father Christmas' letters and for the story of Mr. Bliss), his expressive calligraphy, his love of decoration, and his contributions to the typography and design of his books."
