A New York Times bestseller for twenty-one weeks upon publication, Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-earth is a collection of narratives ranging in time from the Elder Days of Middle-earth to the end of the War of the Ring, and further relates events as told in The Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings.  Now, in a beautifully illustrated edition to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of its original publication, Unfinished Tales Illustrated Edition features original artwork by Tolkien’s most famous and ardent illustrators from over the decades: Alan Lee, John Howe, and Ted Nasmith.

J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892–1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

ALAN LEE was born in Middlesex in 1947. His illustrated books include Faeries (with Brian Froud), Castles and Merlin Dreams, and the three ‘Great Tales’ of Middle-earth: The Children of Húrin, Beren and Lúthien, and The Fall of Gondolin. He has worked on such prestigious films as Erik the Viking (Terry Gilliam), Legend (Ridley Scott), and the acclaimed NBC miniseries Merlin. He is best known, however, for his work on the books The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and now the film versions.

JOHN HOWE is an illustrator best known for his work based on J. R. R. Tolkien's worlds. Howe and noted Tolkien artist Alan Lee served as chief conceptual designers for both Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies, and he also re-illustrated the maps of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion. In addition to his Tolkien-related work, he has illustrated numerous other fantastic worlds, including Anne McAffrey's Pern, a limited edition of George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings, and numerous cards for the game "Magic: The Gathering." He lives in Switzerland.
