First authorized Tolkien T-shirt ever to be sold in the whole world.
The phenomenal success and worldwide popularity of Tolkien and his classic work, The Hobbit, have now been given official T-shirt status. Flat-packed and shrink-wrapped, the T-shirt, one of two different designs, will bear Alan Lee’s cover of the new illustrated The Hobbit, with the wording The Year of the Hobbit round it.
The release of the Tolkien T-shirts will coincide with the publication of the special illustrated edition of The Hobbit, which commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of the book’s original publication in 1937.
