The largest known collection of ledger art ever acquired by one
individual is Mark Lansburgh's diverse assemblage of more than 140
drawings, now held by the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College
and catalogued in this important book. The Cheyennes, Crows,
Kiowas, Lakotas, and other Plains peoples created the genre known
as ledger art in the mid-nineteenth century. Before that time,
these Indians had chronicled the heroic achievements of their
warriors and chiefs on rock, buffalo robes, and tipi covers. As
they came into increasing contact with American traders, the
artists recorded their experiences in pencil and crayon drawings on
paper bound in ledger or account books. The drawings became known
as ledger art.
Let acclaimed Tolkien artist John Howe take you on an unforgettable journey across Middle-earth, from Bag End to Mordor, in this richly illustrated sketchbook fully of previously unseen artwork, anecdotes and meditations on Middle-earth. Middle-earth has been mapped, Bilbo's and Frodo's journeys plotted and measured, but it remains a wilderland for all that. The roads as yet untravelled far outnumber those down which J.R.R. Tolkien led us in his writings. A Middle-earth Traveller presents a walking tour of Tolkien's Middle-earth, visiting not only places central to his stories, but also those just over the hill or beyond the horizon. Events from Tolkien's books are explored - battles of the different ages that are almost legend by the time of The Lord of the Rings; lost kingdoms and ancient myths, as well as those places only hinted at: kingdoms of the far North and lands beyond the seas. Sketches that have an `on-the-spot' feel to them are interwoven with the artist's observations gleaned from Tolkien's books as he paints pictures with his words as well as his pencil. He also recollects his time spent working alongside Peter Jackson on the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film trilogies. Combining concept work produced for films, existing Middle-earth art and dozens of new paintings and sketches exclusive to this book, A Middle-earth Traveller will take the reader on a unique and unforgettable journey across Tolkien's magical landscape.

Dink mens aan Wes-Afrika, dink jy aan woestyn en kamele, Bedoeiene en swaar tekstielweefstof, silwer juweliersware en stomende speserye. Tog is daar naas die bykans mistieke idille-beeld mediaflitse van honger en armoede, politieke onstabiliteit en diktatorskap, vrees en verskrikking. As vryskutjoernalis in Dakar kry Louw die geleentheid om lande soos Senegal, Togo, Ghana, die Ivoorkus en Burkina Faso nie net as “toubab” (Westerling) en toeris te besoek nie, maar kry sy ook glimpse van die streek se hartklop: onreg, ongelykheid en onmag wat dekades na die val van kolonialisme nog die vinger wys na Europese hebsug ... maar ook die kuns, die kleur en die ritme van ’n leefstyl so diep verweef met die waai van die wind, die skakerings van sandduine en die val van die Afrika-son dat dit byna anderkant Westerse woordeskat le. Anderkant ’n eerste kyk. Anderkant Timboektoe.
