The £75 event voucher is redeemable against a beautifully illustrated limited slipcase edition of The Fall of Gondolin.

Alan Lee, long standing Tolkien illustrator and recipient of an Academy Award for his work on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, will be talking about his artwork for Tolkien’s The Fall of Gondolin.

Painstakingly restored from Tolkien’s manuscripts and presented for the first time as a continuous and standalone story, The Fall of Gondolin is one of Tolkien’s Great Tales alongside The Children of Húrin and Beren and Lúthien. This beautiful story captures the rise and fall of a great Elven kingdom, taking place millennia before the events of The Lord of the Rings. This book brings all the existing work together in one place presenting the story in its full glory.

As with the publication of Beren & Luthien in 2017 this will be a huge moment in publishing and we will have a limited amount of copies signed by the illustrator Alan Lee.

Signed Copies of the book can be purchased on our books page which can be accessed via the link below:
