9780048231864: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers v. 2

The second 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 second of which being The Two Towers, in which the Fellowship is sundered. While Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli attempt to rescue the hobbits, Merry and Pippin, Frodo and Sam must journey into Sauron’s desolate land of Mordor unprotected and alone.

Product Description:

Oversized illustrated hardback edition of the second part of JRR Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, fully reset and featuring full-page watercolour paintings by award-winning artist, Alan Lee.

Celebrated Tolkien artist Alan Lee’s lavishly illustrated volume tells the story of Frodo and the Companions of the Ring who have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in the battle with an evil spirit in the Mines of Moria; and at the Falls of Rauros, Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape the rest of the company were attacked by Orcs.

Now they continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin – alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
