Collecting The Precious - Weta Workshop's Chronicles: Creatures and Characters Can't Post

hobbitbookchronicles2creaturesalrg4On the heels of one of the best art books for a film that I've had the chance to add to my personal collection Weta Workshop has announced a second book to their art book range for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The second art book for The Hobbit covers the many creatures and characters that help populate Sir Peter Jackson's adaptation of the first of three movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Within the Chronicles: Creatures and Characters areĀ  quotes from the actors who played the many roles on-screen and this book comes with a size chart, a great way to compare the various sizes of these characters in relation to each other. The book is on sale now for $39 and if you buy now from Weta, you can get a signed copy for your collection. This second book does not ship until April so in the mean time you can still buy the previous Chronicles: Art and Design book for the same $39.

eh [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm annoyed that the cover of the book ahs the photographs on it, it would look better without it, and fit better with the first book.

Anyway, i got it pre ordered! Won't be as good as art and design one though... Unimpressed

Too early [In reply to] Can't Post

I like the cover and how it helps separate just a little from the first book. As far as not being as good as the first I do think its a little early to say that. If the first is any indication it should be every bit as good.

I think it will be. [In reply to] Can't Post

With Weta doing these I believe they will continue to give us great insight into the process of making these films.
