Tolkien’s most iconic works have new editions in the pipeline, with The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and The Silmarillion rereleasing in the coming months. These gorgeous hardcover volumes look absolutely stunning with their new cover art, and are bound to be a hot commodity when they drop. To ensure you get a copy, consider preordering soon. We’re partial to The Hobbit: Collector’s Edition (Hardcover) which arrives in August, but here’s a look at all the upcoming editions. Note that the collector’s edition box set includes The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.


Tolkien’s Gorgeous Illustrated Editions

Not only do these illustrated editions look great on a bookshelf, but they include dozens of exclusive pictures, drawn by Tolkien himself, throughout the text to help bring Middle-earth to life. There are “standard edition” hardcover versions of The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion, each of which is steeply discounted on top of the B1G1 50% off deal. Then there are the deluxe versions, which come with slipcases. The Hobbit’s Deluxe Illustrated Edition is set to release in October, while The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion are available now.

A few even come with a slipcase–making them look extra premium and adding another layer of protection from the elements. Best of all, the six books are currently discounted alongside the B1G1 50% off promotion, giving you a chance to score them for a great low price.
