The Hobbit Giant Vinyl Wall Decal (24/6)

 

Weta 2913. In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole. It was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

We live in the middle of Middle-earth. Now you can too. The hobbits of Weta Workshop have created a Hobbit Window Wall Decal for the world.

Decorate your own abode like Hobbiton. The decal design was digitally composited from film stills by the same artists that worked on The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Position your decal on a clean surface, then sit back and enjoy the serenity of the Shire.

Decal diameter: 70 cm / 27.5"

Material: Removable vinyl sticker

Display areas: The decal can be applied to smooth, flat, finished surfaces: walls and doors at home or the office are ideal!

Application sheet included. Removes cleanly.*

Balrog bust. Weta 2636

 

Two decades after he helped design fell creatures for The Lord of the Rings, Weta Workshop sculptor Jamie Beswarick revisited the Balrog, this time capturing the unfathomable terror as a highly detailed polystone and resin bust. The Balrog's snarling visage was created using the same traditional physical sculpting techniques honed on the trilogy.

When illuminated, the Balrog is truly a demon composed of shadow and dancing flame. The Flame of Udûn joins Weta Workshop's line of creature busts that can be wall-mounted or displayed on an accompanying stand. This collection of fantasy film art is the work of nightmares.

The Balrog bust can either stand on a flat surface or hang on the wall. Just loosen the bolt, turn its head 180 degrees on its base and fasten the bolt again.

This Limited Edition bust of 888 is made from high-quality polystone and resin, and features unique LED lighting to create an illuminated flame effect. Set your Balrog ablaze using the accompanying USB cable (wall charger not included).

Dimensions: 28 x 49 x 30 cm.*

Tauriel of the Woodlands 1/6 scale

 

Weta 2635. Captain of the King's guards, Tauriel was a Silvan Elf of the Woodland Realm. Though considered young among her kind, with but a few centuries of experience, Tauriel was spirited and bright. Her prowess as a warrior saw her lead hunting parties into the glowering dark of Mirkwood to burn out infestations of spiders and other foul things that now haunted the once fair forest.

As a character who was specifically created for The Hobbit motion picture trilogy, Tauriel presented a unique challenge to Weta Workshop's Design Studio. Designers sought to strike a balance between fierce huntress and feminine Elf through weapons and costume. Weta Workshop designer Paul Tobin matched Tauriel's fighting strength to that of Legolas with a signature set of daggers.

For wardrobe, costume designer Lesley Burkes Harding created a sense of continuity with Arwen's riding outfit in The Lord of the Rings. Rather than Elven silks beneath the travelling cloak, Tauriel wore a deerskin jacket and leather cuirass befitting the Captain of Thranduil's Guard. The leather armour was constructed by Weta Workshop's Cathy 'Tree' Harris, with leaf detailing by Kelly Marie and Daniel Falconer.

Capturing all this fine detail, from dual daggers to decorated armour, was sculptor Gary Hunt - no stranger to Middle-earth, having worked on both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Using the original screen-used daggers and costume as reference, Gary worked digitally in Zbrush to bring Tauriel to life.

Dimensions: 23 x 37,5 x 18 cm

Limited to 800 pieces.*

Verlyn Flieger, There Would Always Be a Fairy Tale (10/6)

More Essays on Tolkien

Kent State Univeristy, 2017. 1st edition. Paperback.

Devoted to Tolkien, the teller of tales and co-creator of the myths they brush against, these essays focus on his lifelong interest in and engagement with fairy stories, the special world that he called faërie, a world they both create and inhabit, and with the elements that make that world the special place it is. They cover a range of subjects, from The Hobbit to The Lord of the Rings and their place within the legendarium he called the Silmarillion to shorter works like “The Story of Kullervo” and “Smith of Wootton Major.”

From the pen of eminent Tolkien scholar Verlyn Flieger, the individual essays in this collection were written over a span of twenty years, each written to fit the parameters of a conference, an anthology, or both. They are revised slightly from their original versions to eliminate repetition and bring them up to date. Grouped loosely by theme, they present an unpatterned mosaic, depicting topics from myth to truth, from social manners to moral behavior, from textual history to the micro particles of Middle-earth.

Together these essays present a complete picture of a man as complicated as the books that bear his name—an independent and unorthodox thinker who was both a believer and a doubter able to maintain conflicting ideas in tension, a teller of tales both romantic and bitter, hopeful and pessimistic, in equal parts tragic and comedic. A man whose work does not seek for right or wrong answers so much as a way to accommodate both; a man of antitheses.

Scholars of fantasy literature generally and of Tolkien particularly will find much of value in this insightful collection by a seasoned explorer of Tolkien’s world of faërie.*

Donato Giancola, Middle-earth (9/5)

Journeys in Myth and Legend

Dark Horse, 2019. 1st edtiion. Oversized hardback (no dustjacket issued).

Nearly 200 stunningly realistic paintings and drawings bring the greatest fantasy epic of all time to life. Classical realism unites with contemporary storytelling as artist Donato Giancola explores the mythic grandeur and the iconic characters of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings saga.

Donato has made it his life's work to translate Tolkien's words into compelling visuals, with gorgeous oil paintings and drawings reminiscent of Rembrandt and Caravaggio. His interpretations of Middle-earth span his entire career, from private commissions to the 2001 edition of the graphic novel adaptation of The Hobbit, all collected in this massive compendium--a must-have for collectors of Tolkien and fantasy

"What struck me about J.R.R. Tolkien's work was how he filled Middle-earth with a wealth of history," says Author Donato Giancola. "From the simple beginnings of Bilbo and the dwarves in The Hobbit, to the personal trials of Frodo and the Fellowship in The Lord of the Rings, to the epic tragedies in The Silmarillion, these tales are woven together by a grand fabric of unifying mythologies, bringing depth to the cultures and characters within." *

Arwen and Frodo on Asfaloth. 1/6 scale (18/4)

 

Weta 2637. 2019.

When Aragorn and his hobbit charges were hunted through the wilds of Eriador by Sauron's Ringwraiths, the Elf princess Arwen seized sword and saddle, and rode from Rivendell to meet him. In the Trollshaw Forest Arwen found her love, but the Wraiths were close.

Hobbit Frodo Baggins had been stabbed by a Morgul blade, and even now its shard worked its way ever closer to his heart. On foot they had no chance, but holding Frodo to her, Arwen spurred her valiant mount Asfaloth into the sprint of his life. With the Nine Nazgûl at their heels, Arwen and Frodo rode alone for the Ford of Bruinen, where she hoped the enchanted waters of her father's home might protect them from their pursuers.

Sculpted by the masterful Jane Wenley, Arwen and Frodo on Asfaloth joins Weta Workshop's high-quality 1:6 scale Middle-earth line; a line that is made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies.

Fimi/Honegger (ed.), Sub-creating Arda (5/3)

Walking Tree, 2019. 1st edition. Paperback. Cover by Jay Johnstone.

J.R.R. Tolkien's literary cosmos may not be the most elaborate of the imaginary worlds in existence, it is certainly the most influential. The posthumous editorial work of Tolkien's son Christopher has also shown that Arda remains unrivalled in its consistency and complexity. Additionally, the re-publication of Tolkien's Andrew Lang lecture 'On Fairy-stories' (originally delivered 1939) and its interpretation within the discourse of literary fantasy has further strengthened his position as one of the foremost proponents of literary world-building or, as he himself preferred to call it, (literary) subcreation.

The contributions to this volume by Tom Shippey, John Garth, Mark J.P. Wolf, Kristine Larsen, Andrew Higgins, Allan Turner, Gergely Nagy, Renée Vink, and a dozen other scholars, discuss not only Tolkien's theoretical concepts as well as his literary work but also explore the relationship between Tolkien’s approach with that of other 'literary world-builders' whose imaginary worlds have attracted readers and scholars alike. *

Dark Lord t-shirt (12/2)

Black t-shirt of 100% cotton with on the front Sauron's Eye between the spikes of his helmet.*

Kees Paling, A Rumour of Adventure (1/2)

An Inklings Story

Leipzig, 2019. 1st edition. Paperback.*

Four Inklings - Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and Owen Barfield - go on a walking tour together during four days in May, 1938. They walk in the footsteps of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge through the Quantock Hills in Somerset and into Exmoor. They walk and talk with rucksacks on their backs, rain or shine, up- and downhill, through forests and moorland, smoking their pipes and drinking their beer. Never missing a pub. Tolkien has the first chapters of 'The Next Hobbit' (later: Lord of the Rings) on his mind, C.S. Lewis is halfway his science fiction trilogy, Charles Williams works on a poem about the Arthurian Legends and Owen Barfield studies the concept of Metaphor. It's 1938 and dark shadows grow in the East. What do they talk about and what happens on the way?Based on biographies of The Inklings and the individual authors, their books, letters and diaries, this is an enchanting tale about the long-lasting friendship between the (sub)creators of modern myths and fantasy. You are witness to their conversations, you feel their fatigue when they reach a hilltop and you enjoy their humour and wit. It's almost as if you participate in their journey. And of course - in a way - you do. For as long as you read, the spell isn't broken and the magic is there for you to experience. May I invite you to a special walking tour?
