While we highly-anticipate for Amazon's The Lord of the Rings TV series, you may want to check out this excellent deal for the fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy.
The Lord of the Rings Illustrated Edition, which features art by the author J.R.R. Tolkien himself, is now available for pre-order on Amazon, and its price was recently reduced from $75 to only $45 USD!
Tolkien's artwork featured in this new edition was created as he wrote the original text of his epic fantasy book series. The Illustrated Edition will be packaged with the following features: shrink-wrapped for damage protection, a sewn hardback binding with a ribbon placemark, ink-sprayed edges displaying Tolkien's runes, two maps loosely tucked, and will be printed on FSC "forest-friendly" paper. The text will be printed in two colours with full-colour illustrations, and the dustjacket will be stamped in two foils with a circular die-cut. According to the description on Amazon, the U.S. edition published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will be printed alongside the editions to be sold in the United Kingdom and Australia/New Zealand by HarperCollins to ensure matching quality.
If you want a complete boxed set, you can also check out The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set: Illustrated Edition, which feature illustrations by award-winning artist, Alan Lee. The hardcover boxed set costs $210 while the paperback costs $36.40. They are both now available to order on Amazon.
