The 1970’s would discover the art of The Brothers Hildebrandt through their amazing depictions of the world of Tolkien in the calendars that inspired the imagination of the fantasy world and artists alike.
“The real spark came from the calendars, which showed me that it could be illustrated (The Lord of the Rings). I went through the Hildebrandt calendar, doing my own versions of the same scenes.” – John Howe, Illustrator and Art Director for the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
