Since the first screening of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001, New Zealand has become the embodiment of Middle-earth to millions of moviegoers and Tolkien readers the world over. The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook - Extended Edition is the perfect reference book for everyone enchanted by the beauty of the locations in the movie trilogy. It contains valuable background information and exclusive anecdotes about the filming, with sections written specially by Peter Jackson, Alan Lee, Richard Taylor and Barrie Osborne, plus contributions from the cast and crew.
I love this book! I bought it while travelling New Zealand and I was able to make reference to it constantly. It was a fantastic resource, and a great way to make my trip a lot more interactive. I found the book very informative with lots of fantastic photos. I was extremely happy!
This new book contains all of the features of the popular first and second editions, but has been revised into a larger coffee table size to accommodate the many requests from readers of the first two books. It also includes additional sections, more photos and additional film location information.
In addition, the book includes exclusive movie and location photographs, maps and location directions, GPS references to location sites, touring information for travellers, and useful internet addresses.
