Exploring the geography of Middle-earth and the Undying Lands with this comprehensive atlas. Full-colour maps are featured throughout, charting the shaping of the Arda from its creation to the events of the Third Age.
Through beautiful full-page illustrations of the key places and events of Tolkien’s world, this book tells the story of how the countries and peoples of Middle-earth came to be.
My Rating: 4/5
This beautifully illustrated and narrated book is a perfect companion to The Silmarillion as it illustrates the beautifully described world as it changes around the inhabitants.
It also describes the events that take place which help to mould the landscape so it can be read on its own without The Silmarillion if one wanted.
I think the main thing that I like about this book so much are the incredible illustrations inside it; they really bring the world to life in a way that hasn’t been seen before.
