Rated out of 5 by from The Hobbit: The Art of The Unexpected Journey is a beautiful book. I fell in love with the conceptual makeup and costume designs for the characters in the movie. I was inspired by the detail of costume, accessories and set design. It offers dozens of original sketches, photos from the film and hundreds of images of concepts for the film by make up artists, set designers and Weta workshop. I loved this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing This book is really for all the movie's fans! I'm very pleased with this book and adore it. Each picture, each drawing are inspiring for any artists. The size of the book is perfect! This book will be following me a lot for a long time. I highly recommand this, especially for the artists that want to create art based or about the serie and even cosplayers that want to recreate the costumes. Everything is very well detailed for that.
