The first part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring an exclusive cover image from the film
Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien’s great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal.
To celebrate the release of the major motion picture trilogy, we will be reissuing the A-format paperbacks with exclusive images from the films on the covers, the first of which being The Fellowship of the Ring, in which the young hobbit, Frodo, is bequeathed a magical ring from his Uncle Bilbo, and learns that he must take it into the land of the Dark Lord, Sauron, and cast it into the Cracks of Doom.
