A recently discovered archaeological find provides a wealth of knowledge on the here-to-fore unknown life and habits of Dwarfs in all their day-to-day activities. Close examination is provided of their lives in everything from metalworking technologies to constructing underground dwellings and tunnels. Additionally, insight is offered into the general hierarchy of the population, from lowly laborers to their kings and ruling class.
Meticulously researched and compiled by writers Robb Walsh and David Wenzel, and painstakingly illustrated by Wenzel (artist on The Hobbit and The Wizard's Tale graphic novels).
David T. Wenzel is an illustrator and children's book artist. He is best known for his visualization of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, illustrated in graphic novel format. Over his career David has worked for most of the major publishers and been able to work with a cast of talented authors. Always intrigued by mythology, fantasy, and folk tales some of his favorite projects have been the ones that gave him the freedom to visualize creatures and characters from his imagination. His other work includes The Wizard's Tale with Kurt Busiek, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer with Robert L. May, A Hat For Ivan with Max Lucado, and several books in the Little Bear series which were art directed by Maurice Sendak. David has left his artistic mark on a variety of non-book related projects including puzzles, greeting cards, and two entire miniature kingdoms of collectible figurines.
