    What a joy it is. This book is the perfect showcase of John Howe's masterful control of epicness and scope. Every painting and sketch brimming with detail, with not an inch of any painting not teaming with mystery and intrigue. An artist who can consumately transport the spectator into some of the most emotional, pictueresque, fantastic, epic vistas the greatest fantasy writers can dream up. What a pleasure this book is.
