    Wow, that was wonderful. His artwork is amazing! Does anyone know if there is a reprint of the trilogy with his artwork in it instead of Alan Lee's?

    I'm not aware of one, but IIRC not many of his drawings or paintings were illustrations of LOTR scenes.

    The illustrations he did very much want to appear were the pages from the Book of Mazarbul; he put a lot of work into them, and was disappointed on being told it would be too expensive. Those were finally included in the "corrected" edition of 2004 (the leatherbound 50th anniversary edition).

    As reported earlier there is a quality book to accompany the exhibition (assuming it's the same book for the NY exhibition)

    This is a great exhibition! (I went to it about six months ago when it was first on in Oxford.) Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, and if not, the book that accompanies the exhibition does include a huge range of material.

    The book's definitely on my "to buy" list, Pengolodh.

    And welcome to the forum!

    I've been to the Bodleian . . . this show wasn't there at the time.

    I recently went to NYC (Cloisters and various wanderings) . . . this show wasn't there at the time.

    I did see the great black pine before its fall however.

    Timing!
