Have you ordered your annual yet?


The new movie tie-in book, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Annual 2013, is now out. And you are going to want a copy!

If you order from Amazon using the link buttons on the home page at www.richardarmitagenet.com our dear friend Ali will make sure a portion of the sale goes to charity. Amazon.com only has the books available through their marketplace, but I ordered mine today. After all, my birthday is only a few weeks away, right?  Dearly hoping it arrives well before the middle of October!

The One Ring Net also has an article and artwork from the book, including an amazing portrait of actor Lee Pace as Elven King Thranduil that you can enlarge to see all the intricate details of his costume. http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2012/08/30/61298-thranduil-saruman-the-white-revealed-in-hobbit-film-tie-in-book/

Here’s a taste of the beautiful artwork to be found within the new book:

So, is it December yet??

Have Orcrist, will battle. I’d follow this dude anywhere.

  1. I think we’re going to hear those four words quite a bit over the next 3+ months — “They’re really hot dwarfs!” 😉 Oh, and “Is it December yet?”

  2. I’ve just ordered a copy from Amazon UK, at a cost of AU$23-24, including postage, which I thought was pretty good. I’m assuming it’s hardback, the artwork looks fabulous, and it does have to travel a long way down under! 😀

    BTW I’m no fan of weaponry, of any kind, but looking at the pic above, I have to confess, Orcrist is a magnificent sword…just like it’s bearer! 😉

    • Mine cost just under $20 USD including shipping, and it’s coming from England, so I figured that wasn’t too bad. And yes, it is a hardcover. I wonder just how much Orcrist weighs? it looks like a substantial piece of weaponry, I must say. Oh, and as you will see in a later post, there is definitely some weapon envy going on with Guy re Thorin . . . 😉

  3. I have also ordered mine on Amazon UK, because it was only £ 6.– and the shipping cost was not expensive. At Amazon USA, the shipping price was higher than the book’s price !

  4. I just ordered mine a few minutes ago but it is not coming from England. It is coming from a bookseller right here in New York so I will have next week.

    • I went with the Book Depository because I’ve used them before and had really good luck. I got confirmation it shipped today, so hopefully it won’t be too terribly long before it arrives. My birthday is the 25th so it would be nice to have it before then. 😀

      • BTW – what did you think of the new pics of Thranduil at theonering? I think Lee looks fantastic and perfect as the “father” of Legolas! I wonder if they will ever market copies of the rings he is wearing? I think they’re beautiful and I’d certainly buy one if I got the chance! 🙂 Well maybe not that huge one. 😀
