now a gallery of covers from The Hobbit, with many thanks to boriel who
collected many of these scans into one place for us to enjoy.
The children's version has a hilarious alligator - meets - butterfly for Smaug
and a very very tiny Mirkwood spider. The middle one has artwork by David Wyatt. I like the last one on this
page because it is a pop-up book of John Howe's work!
