The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Chronicles – Cloaks and Daggers peers through the silver screen to examine the incredible efforts undertaken to create thousands of costumes, armour, weapons, props and set dressing elements for Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson’s adaptations of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Covering both The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, this lavish volume bulges with behind the scenes images, sumptuous photography and film stills.

The films’ stars and the creative geniuses behind countless beautiful objets d’art share their insights and stories, revealing how it felt to craft, wield and wear these precious pieces of Middle-earth.

Researched and compiled by Weta Workshop senior concept designer Daniel Falconer, with a foreword by Evangeline Lilly, playing Tauriel the Woodland Elf, and an introduction by costume designer Ann Maskrey, this is the definitive guide to the artefacts and sumptuous fabrics of The Hobbit film adaptations.

The new book follows hot on the heels of the previous books in Weta's series:

As the previous Hobbit Chronicles volumes, the book will be published as an embossed hardcover edition without dustjacket.

 

All books ship directly from Weta's warehouse in Wellington, New Zealand in a specially commissioned cardboard box sturdy enough to ensure your book will arrive in great condition.

Jam-packed with beautifully shot images of every type of craft work that went into making of the movie from hat making to calligraphy. A true visual feast. Volume four meets the high production standards seen in the previous three volumes. Hide.

The details of costumes was always a tricky part for cosplay-er and this book solve all the problems. Thanks!! And I was expecting the signatures would be signed by concept art artists but whao!!! One was signed by Daniel Reeve!!! I AM SOOOOO EXCITED RIGHT NOW!! Am really fond of his talents, his beautiful hand writing (also the Kereru font). Now i think i am the luckiest in the world. Thank you Weta, and would you send my thanks to Mr. Reeve please? Hide.

Lost for words. This volume, like the others, is simply wonderful!

It will also be my guide for building a human scale Hobbit home, when I retire. First, I must win the lottery... Hide.
