Tolkien-related Posters [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's a list of the posters I've collected over the years. I'll be adding another list of the massive numbers of Tolkien-related posters still out there. PLEASE share your collection by adding them to this thread. What better way to enjoy your own personal collection than sharing it with all of us!?! :D


Lord of the Rings Musical 2006 (22" x 34.75") The Princes of Wales Theatre Presentation from March 23 to September 3, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario.
The Hill : Hobbiton Across the Water Anniversary 2002 (16.5 x 23.25) Tolkien began writing The Hobbit in the Summer of 1928 with the now famous line, "In a hole in the ground, there lived a Hobbit." Tolkien continued his work until it was published on April 25, 1937 (original date 1936). Delay was caused by Tolkien continuing work on the book and from creating/redrawing the many illustrations, including the now famous dustjacket.
The Hobbit: Barrel Rider Comes to the Huts of the Raft Elves 1987 (16.5 x 23.25) Drawing done for "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien in 1937. This piece was used for an exhibition by the Bodleian Library, Oxford, from February 24 to May 23, 1987 to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of its publication. This is one of the few posters ever created from Tolkien’s own artwork and was also featured on the cover of the late 1970’s paperback edition of the Hobbit.

Fellowship of the Ring Gandalf and Frodo in the Mines of Moria copyright 2001, distribution 2002 (27" x 40") "'I wish the ring had never come to me...I wish none of this had happened.' 'So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.'"
This image was first seen in newspapers across the nation on New Year's Day 2002. Sir Ian McKellen posted a copy of it on his web site as his own New Year's greeting. Because of the numerous requests for a poster and in response to thousands of fans who participated in an on-line poll, this poster became available to collectors. The image was slightly altered by taking out Gandalf's and Frodo's names and leaving the dialogue to stand on its own (originally inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's words, interpreted by writer/director Peter Jackson) and the artwork was printed in color version on Elite Gloss stock, which is a higher-quality stock than is usually used for movie posters.

American Library Association (ALA)
...In July 2001, The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA-a division of the ALA) announced its association with New Line Cinema and "The Lord of the Rings," as a sponsor of 2001 Teen Read Week, an annual national literacy initiative that encourages teenagers to "read for the fun of it." Teen Read Week highlights the popularity of fantasy literature with teens, who were encouraged to "Make Reading A Hobbit," as a special salute to the fantasy classics of J.R.R. Tolkien.
...As part of its partnership with the ALA, New Line Cinema provided exclusive imagery from the then yet unreleased The Fellowship of the Ring for use in Teen Read Week posters and bookmarks. The first two posters featured Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins reading in a tree and Liv Tyler as Arwen reading in the Rivendell Library followed shortly after by Ian McKellen as Gandalf reading the Book of Mazarbul. The following year, Orlando Bloom holding a copy of Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien was released. The posters and bookmarks can be purchased through the ALA.org store.
