Description



About the Book



Celebrated Tolkien illustrator Alan Lee, a conceptual designer for the blockbuster films based on "The Lord of the Rings, " contributes 50 beautiful full-page, full-color paintings to this elegant three-volume edition.



Book Synopsis



This three-volume boxed set of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece The Lord of the Rings--including The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King--is lavishly illustrated in full color by renowned Tolkien artist Alan Lee.

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 still it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

From his fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, Sauron's power spread far and wide. He gathered all the Great Rings to him, but ever he searched far and wide for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

On his eleventy-first birthday, Bilbo 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.

I brought this set for my 10 year old daughter for Christmas. This set is a little large for hands, but not for her mind. This set is well worth the money and will grow with her for the rest of her life. Don’t hesitate to buy for a collector, a friend, or a reader.

I’ve been doing research on which version of the trilogy is best and I’m so glad to have come across this one. It’s definitely “collector quality“ and the full-page illustrations are beautiful. Highly recommend!

My boyfriend is such a big fan of LOTR, and he's been talking about the illustrated version for years. He was so excited to get this! He said it was perfect! If you're deciding between this and the one with all three books bound- I would go for this one! Way easier to read than one book with 1000+ pages.
