The Hobbit as JRR Tolkien imagined it – in pictures

'The White Dragon Pursues Roverandom and the Moondog'. The Hobbit as JRR Tolkien imagined it – in pictures. When The Hobbit was first published almost 75 years ago, JRR Tolkien provided a set of wonderful illustrations. But buried among the author's papers were 110 drawings, watercolours and sketches, some of which have never been published before.

I love the detail in this peace and I believe that it will help me when I'm drawing and creating detailed rocks and mountains.
