Top Ten Tuesday Top Ten Nasmith LotR Art


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This week is a rogue topic for me- I am going with Ted Nasmith cover art for The Lord of the Rings. Why such a tangent? Well, I've been wanting to do a Cover Love post on this for weeks and wasn't feeling the topic this week, so... here we are!         
              





 Nasmith is one of my favorite artists for LotR- actually, he may be my favorite.

  8. Beautiful art - even though I've never read the books, those covers would almost make me consider it. almost. :) Great 'rogue' topic.

  9. 2023 will be the year I read The Lord of the Rings.... I promise I will! The set we have at school is rather boring, just plain black.

  21. I like the 4th one. It makes me want to spend some time there.

  22. The artworks are great. I especially like the first cover, the fellowship of the ring, with the water horses. Nasmith artwork makes me think of old fashion paintings, so much details and it definitely looks like he took the time to make his art.

    Have a lovely day.

  23. I did a book cover alternative for this week's list as well. Those are beautiful covers. I have not read Lord of the Rings, but I watched the movies and cried a river of tears. :-)

  27. Wow neat to look at these covers. I particularly like the art at the end of the post. It looks like quite a major canyon. Beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Stunning cover art. So much better than what I have, which are ugly movie-tie in covers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful artwork! I really love the sense of 'depth' there is in the landscapes. You can genuinely believe there's more to see of the scene happening just out of frame.

  30. Oh wow, that art is really gorgeous!!! I'm not a fan of Lord of the Rings, but fantasy art is truly magical.

  33. I'm with Sam. I want a hobbit house under a hill.

  34. One of these days I will watch Lord of the Rings.

  35. I really love the covers of the Unfinished Tales and the Silmarillion. I only finished the Silmarillion about 6 weeks ago, I liked it but some bits were quite slow.

    ReplyDelete
  36. These are absolutely gorgeous and I can see why he's your favorite. I can't decide which one I like the most but they are all wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I must finally read Tolkien. I've seen movies, but a book is always a book.

  38. What beautiful art -- the last one is so majestic!
