A portfolio of six oversized paintings from The Hobbit illustrated by award-winning artist and The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Movie Trilogy film designer, Alan Lee, individually printed on heavyweight stock suitable for framing. First published on 21st September 1937, The Hobbit is a beloved children's classic that is widely recognized as an international bestseller. It has now been adapted into an acclaimed film trilogy by Peter Jackson starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Andy Serkis as Gollum, and Benedict Cumberbatch playing both Smaug the Dragon and the Necromancer. Renowned Tolkien artist Alan Lee played a decisive role in shaping Jackson's vision of The Hobbit, and much of the look of the films can be traced back to the 25 paintings and wealth of pencil drawings that Alan produced for the illustrated 60th anniversary edition of the book. The six pictures contained in this poster collection are taken from those paintings and at 450 x 293mm are large enough to be suitable for hanging or mounting, offering you the chance to enjoy a window into Middle-earth in your own home.

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum. Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider. This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index. J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ – eine der drei Großen Geschichten des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde Zwei der größten Mächte Mittelerdes stehen sich in ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ gegenüber: Auf der einen Seite Morgoth, die Verkörperung des Bösen und auf der anderen Ulmo, der Herr der Meere, Seen und Flüsse unter dem Himmel. Im Zentrum ihres Konflikts steht die verborgene Elben-Stadt Gondolin. Turgon, König von Gondolin, wird von Morgoth mehr als alles andere gehasst. Seit Langem versucht der dunkle Herrscher, Gondolin zu finden und zu zerstören, aber vergeblich. In diese Welt kommt Tuor und wird zum Werkzeug von Ulmos Plan. Von ihm geleitet, macht sich Tuor auf den gefahrvollen Weg nach Gondolin und gelangt in die verborgene Stadt. Dort heiratet er Idril, die Tochter Turgons; ihr Sohn ist Earendil, dem es vorherbestimmst ist, einmal der berühmteste Seefahrer des Ersten Zeitalters zu werden. Durch einen gemeinen Verräter erfährt Morgoth, wie er einen vernichtenden Angriff gegen die Stadt führen kann, mit Balrogs, Drachen und zahllosen Orks. Das Verhängnis nimmt seinen Lauf. Christopher Tolkien verwendet in dieser Ausgabe eine vergleichbare Darstellung der Entwicklung der Geschichte wie bei ›Beren und Lúthien‹. Für J.R.R. Tolkien war ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ »die erste richtige Geschichte aus dieser imaginären Welt«, und wie ›Beren und Lúthien‹ und ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ zählte er sie zu den drei ›Großen Geschichten‹ des Ersten Zeitalters von Mittelerde. ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹ wurde von Christopher Tolkien herausgegeben und bildet den Abschluss der drei großen Geschichten, die 2007 mit ›Die Kinder Húrins‹ begonnen und 2017 mit ›Beren und Lúthien‹ fortgesetzt wurde. Dieser neue Band enthält zahlreiche Farbtafeln des berühmten Tolkien-Künstlers Alan Lee. Weltweiter Erscheinungstermin von ›Der Fall von Gondolin‹: 30. August 2018
