New English (UK) Hobbit has arrived…..

Looks familiar, is it not? Yes, there are at least two editions that look like this Hobbit. One for the 75 years jubilee and one with the words THE WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER in just another way.

Illustrations by Cor Blok

This time not an announcement of a new Hobbit. This time I show you the ten reproductions of work by Dutch artist Cor Blok, inspired by The Lord of the Rings.

I bought these reproductions (signed by Cor Blok himself) at www.tolkienlibrary.com.

I love the reproductions, see for yourself.

“New” French Hobbit has arrived ….

Not really a new edition. I have deceided not to buy all the editions with a cover of part two of The Hobbit. Yet I will try and collect all the covers from part one.
This was a missing one: France. Not the same as Fra 27: different positions for the logo and “Maintenant au cinéma”.

Here he is … the Argentinian Hobbit, first print 1964

It was in 2009 – I was a guest in a radio programme – that I was asked which Hobbit I wanted most: it was the first print of The Hobbit from Argentina.
And guess what? He’s here ……
Today he arrived! Thanks to Dutch colleague Tolkien collector Miriam V. (thank you so much).
