As you say, “for fans of his artwork”. For myself, I must admit that I find Giancola to be the one professional artist whose Tolkien illustrations I can find no sympathy for whatsoever (of those that I have seen, obviously, but that is by now a rather diverse crowd).

The sense of motion he could put on a card (in the ME:TW game) was amazing. I enjoyed his presentation at this year's Mythcon.

Heard from Donato today that the book has gone to a second printing before release. Should have my copy in hand soon for reviewing.
