A selection of six poster paintings from the definitive illustrated Lord of the Rings. The 50 paintings contained within the centenary edition of The Lord of the Rings in 1992 have themselves become classics and Alan Lee's interpretations are hailed as the most faithful to Tolkien's own vision. This new poster collection reproduces six of the most popular paintings from the book in a format suitable either for hanging as posters or mounting and framing.
Shortlisted for BBC Big Read Top 100 2003.
