Catalogue Note

EACH VOLUME CARRIES AN INSCRIPTION AND ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING BY ALAN LEE. Alan Lee (b. 1947), renowned for his book illustrations to Tolkien's work, was also a concept artist for the Peter Jackson film trilogy of The Lord of the Rings. He was also employed on The Hobbit trilogy. Jackson notes that Lee's art "captured what I hoped to capture with the films." The inscriptions are to Costa Botes (b. 1958), the New Zealand writer, director and cinematographer, who was responsible for three behind-the-scenes documentaries about the making of the three films in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
