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, a perfect complement to volume one, reproduces six more of the most popular paintings from the book in a format suitable either for hanging as posters or mounting and framing.
