New Zealand is famous around the world as the home of Middle-Earth – thanks to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogies. The legacy of these iconic films lives on through New Zealand Post’s commemorative stamps – which are available together for the first time in a stunning publication.
An exclusive new stamp is also contained inside! Whether you’re a fan of Hobbits, Orcs, Dwarves, Elves, Men or Wizards, StampNews.com ensures that there’s something for everyone in this New Zealand brand new Middle-earth collectable!
For the first time, each miniature sheet produced by New Zealand Post for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogies (37 miniature sheets) is now available in the ultimate collectable: A Journey through Middle-earth. This beautifully crafted book has been inspired by the journal written by Hobbits Bilbo Baggins and his heir Frodo Baggins in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
It comes complete with an embossed leatherette cover, fastened with a button modelled from the waistcoat of Bilbo Baggins. Inside the pages, which have been printed on premium textured paper, you can re-live this great adventure with the film synopses, quotes from your favourite characters, conceptual illustrations and stunning photography. Each of the miniature sheets contained within are individually numbered, making them uniquely collectable. Each book also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
One stamp to rule them all
To really set this book apart from the rest, inside you’ll also find a never seen before stamp. This exclusive stamp features the ‘One Ring’ embossed in 22 carat gold foil. The ‘One Ring’ is at the heart of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, so it’s fitting that this powerful symbol features on its own New Zealand stamp for the first time.
The round $10 stamp sits within a miniature sheet featuring the iconic map of Middle-earth, and each miniature sheet is individually numbered, so make sure you don’t miss out! This unique book is limited to only 2,000 worldwide and won’t last long so place your order now!
Note: Unnumbered versions of this miniature sheet are available individually in limited quantities. There is no first day cover for this issue.
