The Witch-king of Angmar as envisioned by Frank Frazetta, Brothers Hildebrandt, Ralph Bakshi, and Peter Jackson.

The first time I read Lord of the Rings I was a child. It was the 1970’s and I had never seen an illustration of the book, so the picture of the world I built in my mind was truly my own.

Later I saw some paintings by the Brothers Hildebrandt (who also famously made the original Star Wars and Barbarella posters), and their vision began to merge with my own. This was followed by the Bakshi and Peter Jackson films. Today these artist’s interpretations of the world have become so mixed in my head that I can’t remember what my original childhood picture looked like.
