Tripping with Tolkien

I recently came across this book "J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator" in my local library and was whisked away. Now, I have to admit, for someone who has relished every fae inspired, magic filled fiction read; I am not a great Tolkein fan. In fact, I'm not a fan of the Lord of the Rings at all but perusing these pages sent me into compete awe of the fantastical, otherworldly brilliance of J.R.R.Tolkien. It has also inspired me to restock my watercolour collection; await results.
