A Long-Expected Giveaway for Hobbit Day
Win the Deluxe Illustrated by the Author edition of The Hobbit!
Happy Hobbit Day!
Today is Hobbit Day, a holiday that fellow lovers of Middle-earth celebrate in honor of September 22nd being Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday! And much as I would like to give them each a gift, I’m doing the next best thing: giving a gift to one of YOU!
That’s right, dear readers, it’s time for another Jokien with Tolkien giveaway!
In honor of Hobbit Day I’m giving away a copy of the deluxe edition of the recently released “Illustrated by the Author” edition of The Hobbit (a $150 value)!
The Deluxe edition of The Hobbit Illustrated by the Author is a beautiful slipcased edition, illustrated throughout with over 50 sketches, drawings, paintings and maps by J.R.R. Tolkien himself, with the complete text printed in two colors.
Unique to this edition are two poster-size, fold-out maps revealing all the details of Thror's Map and Wilderland, an illustrated 88-page booklet, and a printed art card reproducing Tolkien's original dustjacket painting.
It is additionally quarterbound in green leather, with raised ribs on the spine, stamped in three foils on black cloth boards, and housed in a custom-built clothbound slipcase. The pages are edged in gold and include a ribbon marker.
At $150, Smaug himself would be proud to add this to his hoard, but for one of you reading this the only thing it will cost is entering into this giveaway!
Here’s how to enter
Enter the giveaway by following the link at the bottom of this post and complete additional entries by completing additional actions (including sharing it on social media or via email). No purchase necessary to win.
The giveaway will run from today, September 22nd, through the night of Tuesday, September 26th. The winner will be selected September 27th and I will announce the winner after I get in touch with them to inform them that they’ve won.
