New "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" Tie-In Book Covers Revealed

On November 6, four Hobbit movie tie-in books (The Official Movie Guide, The Visual Companion, The World of Hobbits, and The Movie Storybook) will be released by Houghton Mifflin (US) and HarperCollins (UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand), followed by Chronicle: Art & Design in December.

Click under the cut for more information on these upcoming releases.

Written by Tolkien expert and Peter Jackson's official biographer, Brian Sibley, The Official Movie Guide offers exclusive interviews with the principal cast and crew - including actors Martin Freeman and Sir Ian McKellen, and director Peter Jackson - as well as behind-the-scenes photos of the actors, costumes, sets, and locations.

Jude Fisher's (a former Tolkien editor) The Visual Companion is exactly that: a photo companion to the first Hobbit film. It also features a new map outlining the journey from Bag End to Wilderland.

The World of Hobbits is a young reader's guide to Hobbits and their world. Including photos from the film, the book will tell a reader all they need to know about Hobbits - from their appearance to their appetites, and more.

The Movie Storybook is a photo-filled storybook of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Finally, Chronicle: Art & Design is packed with over 1,000 images, compiled by Weta Workshop, of concept artwork, photographs, and paintings by the artists who have brought Middle-earth to life, complete with artist commentary.
