The Lovereading4Kids comment
This book has been created by the eminent Tolkien illustrator John Howe. His inspiration for Lost Worlds has been the many lost places of the world, both mythical and real, ranging from Atlantis and Troy, Shambhala and Avalon to Babylon and Pompeii, Camelot and the Garden of Eden. Two pages are devoted to each lost place or city and the result is a wonderful explanation of everything you might want to know about each place coupled with absolutely stunning full bleed illustrations. You cannot fail as an adult or child to be in awe of this illustrator’s talent.
And, as Sir Ian Mckellen (Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings of course) in his introduction for this book said, ‘when enthusiasts praised me for being “exactly as I’d always imagined Gandalf to be”, they were surely remembering John Howe’s pictures rather than Tolkien’s text’.
Lost Worlds by John Howe
Lost Worlds draws together John Howe's incredible artwork with a wealth of historical facts and mythological texts to create a visually stunning, classic title. This unique children's book is a first for John Howe. It is a project which fascinates him entirely, so much so that this is the first subject he has committed himself to write about.
