Artist Matt Ferguson has created a couple of brilliantly cool illustrations inspired by The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. He is producing them with a letterpress! The poster above is called "One Ring to Rule them All," the one below is called "There and Back."
This is what Matt had to say about the project over on Collective Cult,
"I always liked the circular nature of the adventures in the Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings stories, how by the end of the adventure everything is set right and the Hobbits go back home the way they came. So I found myself thinking about how that would make a good piece of art, the perfect summation of “There And Back Again”. Once the idea popped into my head it all seemed so simple, why not make it all one piece with the ring and then the different locations/events that happen on the outside of it all going round in circle. I then applied the same idea to the Hobbit but instead of using a ring I thought it would be cool to use a hexagon motif, as it reminded me of the angular aspect of Dwarf society, it also just so happened that I could fit some dwarf writing into that shape better as well. I really couldn’t believe no one had come up with a similar idea before! I love it when a plan comes together."
