NEW for 2018 AVAILABLE FROM 26th SEPTEMBER Jay Johnstones Tolkienography Isildur’s Bane with commentary by Thomas Honegger
Taking inspiration from Byzantine iconography to the great works of Gustav Klimt, jay works with traditional methods and techniques exploring the relationship of people in literature from the motivations of core characters to the defining inspiration of their creation. The results are a stunning collection of painting, manuscripts and sculptures that could have been made in the monasteries of Greece in the Middle Ages or in the libraries of Minas Tirith. This book explores the painting of Isildur’s Bane and the ideas and concepts that came from it’s creation with commentary from Professor Thomas Honegger.
This beautifully designed hardback book comes in a gilded presentation box and contains colour plates of Jay’s unique work.
Each book is individually numbered and signed by Jay Johnstone.
