Para conmemorar el 75 aniversario de la primera publicación de El Hobbit, todo el material ilustrado creado por Tolkien para su historia ha sido reunido en este libro que contiene más de cien bocetos, dibujos, pinturas, mapas y planos; tanto versiones preliminares y alternativas, como material artístico acabado. Algunas de las ilustraciones de este volumen permanecían totalmente inéditas, mientras que otras se publican por primera vez a color.

Las ilustraciones de Tolkien para El Hobbit parecen más vivas que nunca gracias a los nuevos escaneados digitales de las bibliotecas Bodleian de Oxford y de la Universidad Marquette de Wisconsin.

Cuando J. R. R. Tolkien escribió El Hobbit ya era un hábil artista amateur, y realizó varias ilustraciones durante el proceso de escritura de su libro.

La primera edición de El Hobbit incluía diez ilustraciones en blanco y negro, dos mapas y una cubierta y sobrecubierta diseñadas por su autor. Más tarde, Tolkien también pintó cinco escenas a color que están consideradas entre sus mejores trabajos. Sus ilustraciones para El Hobbit resultan un valor añadido de este inolvidable libro, y han influido a los lectores de varias generaciones en el modo de imaginar a Bilbo Bolsón y su mundo.

I recently reread (for the nth time, although for the first time in years) “The Lord of the Rings” along with this reader’s companion. If you are one of those people who became a LOTR fan in your youth, learned how to write in Elvish, love the Simarillion, and read the book many times, I highly recommend reading it again along with this commentary. It helped me appreciate even more how the depth of Tolkien’s academic scholarship permeates every word in LOTR. It also helped change my mind and I now consider Tolkien not only a great story teller and world builder, but an incredible writer. I even for the first time appreciate and enjoy his poetry.

I should add that 57 years after I first read LOTR, I appreciate even more his incredible world building, and his deep exploration of human psychology in a fantasy setting. He is truly the master of the genre and has never yet been surpassed. But he also deserves to be appreciated as a great writer, not just in his genre.

As a side note, perhaps it is related to my current age, but I now find LOTR incredibly sad and depressing. The commentary just helped deepen that feeling. I never before fully appreciated how Catholicism is such a pessimistic religion and how deeply it’s despairing view of human nature permeates Tolkien’s writing.
