Since it was first published, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, this work of sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike. Across its many editions, in the region of 100 million copies have been sold around the world. And no edition has proved more popular than the Centenary edition illustrated by award-winning artist, Alan Lee.

Now, for the first time since its publication in 1992, this illustrated edition has been revised and expanded, with a number of brand-new paintings and more than 50 pencil drawings added by the artist.

Readers will be able to follow the complete story of the Hobbits and their part in the quest of the Ring—beginning with Bilbo’s Long-expected Party and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom—while also enjoying over fifty full-page color paintings and numerous illustrations which accompany this epic tale.

This new hardcover set of this beautifully illustrated work has been bound in cloth and leather and features brand-new cover designs by the artist. The three volumes are housed in a custom-built illustrated slipcase stamped in silver foil with designs created exclusively by Alan Lee and are accompanied by three removable art cards and two foldout maps of Middle-earth drawn by Christopher Tolkien.
