About the AuthorAlongside Alan Lee, Howe was lead conceptual artist of The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, and his vision of the dragon Smaug has set a standard. His work has also been inspired by such legends as Beowulf and he has illustrated many other books, including A Diversity of Dragons. He also contributed to the film adaptation of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Most recently, Howe has published a book exploring his own dragon artworks: John Howe, Forging Dragons.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father's death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.
