Op Shop Find - Lord of the Rings Poster

Found this the other day at the Salvos. It's on a bevelled board and has good hanging string. It's very big. It's very perfect. And it's a trip back to 30 years ago when I had this as a poster Blu-tacked onto my wall.

The illustrator is Jimmy Cauty and I think he created this in 1973.

I love it because of the memories of different times, it's Tolkein related, and it's pre the commercial movie posters that have flooded the place in recent years.

It's going to my eldest son who would have seen it as a babe - the same eldest son who, at the age of 8, read Lord of the Rings for the first time. (Yep, he did things like that, uh-huh!)
