Biographie de l'auteur
Ian Brodie is a former Air Force pilot who has become a renowned expert on his native New Zealand. His interest in photography and in The Lord of the Rings led him to write and compile this guide, which was then authorised and embraced by Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema. He is now the official Middle-earth spokesperson for Air New Zealand, the official airline of the movies, and he even has a small walk-on part in The Return of the King.
John Howe was born in 1957 in Vancouver, Canada. After finishing High School, he moved to France in 1976, where he attended the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg, gaining a Diploma in Illustration. Aside from illustrating jackets for numerous Tolkien and other fantasy works he has also illustrated many children’s books. He lives in Switzerland with his wife and their ten-year-old son.

This book contains great pics from the movie shooting. It's not too small and not too big. Just the right size if you want to take it with you during your N-Z trip.

However it is a perfect book who would like to travel New Zealand and make a movie tour of the Hobbit, nevertheless it also comes through that you should almost always try to rent a helicopter to access these locations, so its not a lonely planet guide, how to see New Zealand on a shoestring. Like I said, it's primarily a beautiful photo album, an enjoyable visual journey through Middle Earth landscapes.
The greatest lack of the whole guidebook (which really is a silly, and I simply don't get it why it is like that), is that there is NO MAP of New Zealand in the book. Not even a general overview. I may be one of the readers who doesn't know the geography of this island, but I simply have no ide where these locations are.You have miniature maps of areas that foreign readers will not be able to place. It is plain silly that I had to get a computer and use google maps, just to see where the landscape I was reading about is. WHY? I read from comments that the same mistake was made on Ian Brodie's first Location Guidebook to the LOTR films. Why not just put in a map of New Zealand that marks all the spots!? It has already been done on the extended DVD edition to the LOTR films (and I assume it will be done for the Hobbit as well). So that is a bit annoying. To be quite frank after reading about all these wonderful sights, I have absolutely no "picture" or idea in my head how far these locations are from one another, or even where they are exactly. I didn't get to know the geography of New Zealand from the book at all, so if I were to travel there to locate these sites, I wouldn't even know where I would be landing. So it's really not a guidebook on its own right, but a good complimentary literature to a relable travel guide. Maybe all of thisis intentional, and is part of the movie magic. The longer these places remain identified with the map of Middle Earth, and stay e.g. the Misty Mountains, and Erebor the longer they live in our fantasies.
Do not fall into this trap, would-be readers, save your sanity and pass by on this book.
It contains All the locations the recipient of book visited whilst in NZ, so am confident it will be appreciated.
