    DescriptionThe ultimate celebration of the first two Hobbit movies reveals the culmination of the creative vision for the film through more than 500 previously unpublished photographs, plus exclusive interviews with the designers, cast and crew, written and designed by the team at Weta Workshop. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Chronicles - Cloaks and Daggers peers through the silver screen to examine the incredible efforts undertaken to create thousands of costumes, armour, weapons, props and set dressing elements for Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson's adaptations of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. Covering both The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug , this lavish volume bulges with behind the scenes images, sumptuous photography and film stills. The films' stars and the creative geniuses behind countless beautiful objets d'art share their insights and stories, revealing how it felt to craft, wield and wear these precious pieces of Middle-earth. Researched and compiled by Weta Workshop senior concept designer Daniel Falconer, with a foreword by Evangeline Lilly, playing Tauriel the Woodland Elf, and an introduction by costume designer Ann Maskrey, this is the definitive guide to the artefacts and sumptuous fabrics of The Hobbit film adaptations.
