The Children's Treasury of Literature In ColourThis collection of children’s stories includes the first chapter of The Hobbit - ‘An Unexpected Party’ illustrated by Robert J. Lee.

Tolkien himself famously described these illustrations as “vulgar, stupid and entirely out of keeping with the text”.

Very much a product of the times, the illustrations are indeed playful and a bit psychedelic. But personally I rather like Robert J. Lee’s pictures - and the fact that they have Dwalin the dwarf with an actual blue beard.
