This fabulous art book has all of the Hildebrandt's Tolkien art from their three calendars published in 1976-1977 and 1978.
It also has all of their Tolkien finished sketches, concept sketches and rough sketches that have survived the decades years since the first calendar was published. Includes dozens of photos of their posing sessions in the seventies.
The fun-filled wonderful text is written by Greg Hildebrandt, Junior as it was seen through his eyes. Greg Jr. reflects back to when he was a child--remembering back to 5, 6 and 7 years old when he posed for all the Hobbits in his Dads and Uncle Tim's calendar art.
There are dozens of quotes from Greg and Tim. Some are funny and some are technical. All are worth reading.
The back section of the book has all of their Tolkien art done since 1978. This includes their chess set designs, magazine covers and commissioned artwork.
