John Howe Art

Second only to Alan Lee in the world of Tolkien painting is John Howe. His paintings are common on the covers and in the pages of LOTR editions. Both Alan Lee and Howe served as chief conceptual designers for Peter Jackson's film adaptation of LOTR. That's why so many of the locations and sets in the films are familiar to owners of illustrated volumes with the art of Lee and/or Howe.
