A pre-release conceptual promotional booklet for Peter Jackson's 2001 adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings.
A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.
Printed on heavy card stock, this rare folio was given out early on during the production process. The Gothic-style card cover opens to reveal a translucent page covered with a silhouette of the Balrog and key cast autographs, including Elijah Wood and Ian McKellen, that is dedicated to "Sue" and "Barnardos", a UK children's charity. The pages inside contain key snippets of information and conceptual images, including a reference to the launch of the film's official website in May 1999. The cover page features the film's original logo. Some pages have creases and the card cover is foxed.
