Giveaway! 'Tales from the Perilous Realm' (Limited Edition) - J.R.R. Tolkien


This one is pretty special...

Harper Collins are in the process of relaunching their 'Tolkien Store', an online store where you can pick up limited edition 'collectors' Tolkien books. I would supply a link but (at the time of writing) the site is still undergoing maintenance...

Anyway, to mark the relaunch one lucky winner will be able to bag themselves a limited edition copy of 'Tales from the Perilous Realm' that comes with the following...

Contains more than fifty pencil drawings, all of which were specially commissioned from award-winning artist, Alan Lee

Features an exclusive colour frontispiece painting by Alan Lee, which appears as a fold-out sheet

Includes a specially written introduction by acclaimed Tolkien scholar and writer, Tom Shippey

Each copy personally hand-signed by Alan Lee

Quarter-bound in green with grey boards, stamped in red, gold and silver foil with a unique motif specially created by Alan Lee, and housed in a matching custom-built slipcase

Printed on superior quality paper and including a silk ribbon marker


Are you interested? Do you live in the UK? Do you know someone in the UK who could enter on your behalf? (As you've probably already guessed, I'm only allowed to open this one to UK entrants...) Entering is as easy as it was to enter the 'Stupidest Angel' competition yesterday. Simply drop me an email telling me who you are and what your mailing address is (oh yes, be sure to make it clear that this is the competition that you want to enter!), I'll pick a winner.

I'll leave this one open until next Saturday (6th December) and announce the winner on the following Sunday.

Good Luck!

Too bad I don't live in the UK anymore! I would have loved to be able to study those Alan Lee drawings in greater detail, especially since I'm planning to write an art historical article on fantasy illustration/art.
