I have just had a quick look at my copy of Pictures and Artist and Illustrator. I think both books are excellent, Pictures because it has some bigger pictures than Artist and Illustrator, but Artist and Illustrator is a much more comprehensive book than Pictures.

Did this book include everything unique by JRRT (be it pieces of art or writings) that were already contained in Pictures of J.R.R. Tolkien?


No is the answer, as there are some illustrations in Pictures that are not in Artist and Illustrator but all the main ones are and I'm sure that Wayne and Christina can give you a much more detailed answer to your questions.

Some years ago I was given Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond's excellent J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator (a birthday gift from my dear wife!).

Now, I have small question: Did this book include everything unique by JRRT (be it pieces of art or writings) that were already contained in Pictures of J.R.R. Tolkien? As the latter is out-of-print and expensive on ebay and similar, I would like to know if it is worth to try to acquire it (as I'm more of a collector of Tolkien's ideas than his books).

I guess there is an answer to my question in the foreword to JRRT: Artist and Illustrator. However, because of my present geographic location, I cannot access that work for the moment.

I got my replacement version of the Index from HarperCollins, the typos have been fixed and this copy was bound correctly. I think it is a really nice book now and goes very well with the other 12 hardback volumes.
