My numero uno illustrator would have to be Alan Lee, and Mr. Lee will be at London's Forbidden Planet Megastore on Thursday 19th April, 6-7pm. Here's the official blurb from fp.com: THE CHILDREN OF HURIN RRP: Â£18.99 Our Price: Â£14.99 Thursday 19th April 6- 7pm London Megastore One of the two lead concept artists for the 'Lord of the Rings' movie trilogy, Alan Lee won an Academy Award in 2004 for his work on 'The Return Of The King'. Painstakingly reconstructed by Christopher Tolkein from his father's manuscripts, this book tells tales of Morgorth, Glaurung and the World before Sauron. Featuring magical illustrations by Lee throughout, this is a missing chapter in the greatest fantasy saga of them all. A serious consideration for me, anyone else interested??
