The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-earth
Explore Tolkien's world.
This is the Middle-earth tour guide you've been waiting for. The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-earth is jam packed with tons of information by noted Tolkien expert Brian Sibley and fantabulous illustrations by John Howe. But let's just list all the good stuff so you can see what you're getting (all in a beautiful slipcover):
Map of Wilderland - a delightful evocation of the lands where Bilbo journeyed 'there and back again' in The Hobbit.
Map of Middle-earth - a breath-taking panorama of all the realms from Hobbiton to Mordor that feature in The Lord of the Rings.
Map of Beleriand - a lyrical portrayal of the ancient landscape of Middle-earth, where the epic battles as told in The Silmarillion were fought.
Map of Númenor - new to this collector's edition, this never-before-published reproduction of the mythical island that was sunk beneath the waves of the Sundering Sea.
Measuring 28" x 28", all four maps are loose inside a special folder, ideal for framing or for laying alongside the novels as you read (or re-read) Tolkien's words. Also, you get an exclusive 80-page hardcover book with tell the fascinating stories behind the Middle-earth novels. Plus, it's got a gazetteer of all the names on each of the maps and extra info about all the places. Ready to sit right next to your beloved Tolkien works, The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-earth is a gorgeous (and, we think, necessary) additional to any library.
