Fantasy illustrator Alan Lee worked with Rosemary Sutcliff

Posted by

Rosemary Sutcliff’s books The Wanderings of Odysseus and Black Ships before Troy were both illustrated by the incredibly talented artist Alan Lee.

Alan is possibly most famous for his illustrations of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Alan was also the joint lead artist on Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings.

I was hoping to post an illustration but the image are under copyright, so I’m posting a link to the google books preview page of The Wanderings of Odysseus, with full colour illustrations.
