The landscape of 'Lord of the Rings' may have been interpreted in a myriad of ways, most notably by director Peter Jackson, yet people can now be treated to the original vision of the series thanks to this rare collection of J.R.R. Tolkien illustrations. People might known the acclaimed English author for his famous fantasy series, yet now people will know that he was also a talented artist in another way.

Whimsical and detailed, these J.R.R. Tolkien illustrations flesh out the series like nothing else can. After all, true fans will love seeing Middle-Earth through his eyes. Shared on the Internet by Reddit user ethan_kahn, people were taken aback that the J.R.R. Tolkien illustrations were drawn by the author. Yet they did appear on older copies of his books.
