Waiting on Wednesday: Middle-earth Landscapes: Locations in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Film Trilogies

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week is pretty special for two reasons: 1) I’m participating in March into Middle-earth (LINK) so I thought it would be perfect to spotlight a book that’s on brand and since it’s something that I had recently pre-ordered, it basically came to me immediately, and 2) this is the first WoW post I’ve ever created where I’m unable to find the book on Goodreads! I honestly didn’t even know there could be books that aren’t on Goodreads.  They’re so on top of everything!  Anyway, Middle-earth Landscapes: Locations in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Film Trilogies is a new coffee-table book with a pretty self explanatory title.  It seems to be a combination of the previous two books which were released separately (one for LOTR and one for The Hobbit) but of course, there is some new photography exclusive to this edition to entice all of us Tolkien fiends.  Having never owned either of the previous books, I thought this is a pretty good option for me!  There’s a forward by Peter Jackson along with contributions from Richard Taylor, Andy Serkis and Alan Lee.  Since I don’t see any trip to New Zealand in the foreseeable future, this is a great piece of art to tide me over until that day comes!


Sumptuous hardback gift edition combining the best of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Location Guides, plus brand new photography unique to this book.

In the epic film trilogies created by Peter Jackson, New Zealand has become Middle-earth. From the majestic peaks of the Southern Alps to the rolling hills and Volcanic Plateau of the North Island, the world of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit was stunningly re-created on an epic scale.

Photographer Ian Brodie has captured these locations in all their beauty and splendour. Featuring the most breathtaking photographs from his bestselling The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook and The Hobbit Motion Picture Trilogy Location Guidebook, plus all-new imagery and contributions by Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor, Andy Serkis and Alan Lee, this is a magnificent record of a historic era in film-making, and a peerless collection of landscape and location photography by a master of his craft.

Featuring contributions from Peter Jackson and other members of the films’ cast and crew, as well as fascinating background to the film-making process, this is the ultimate tribute to the land and its locations. (via Amazon)
