Colouring books have lately had an enormous resurgence in popularity among adults, and Harper Collins and Warner Bros Consumer Products are doing their bit to help it along with the announcement of an official The Lord of the Rings Movie Trilogy Colouring Book.
We understand the book will combine official character artwork from the films, including Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Frodo, Sam and Gollum, with brand-new colouring pages.
The colouring-in art, created by artist Nicolette Caven, will capture vistas from all three The Lord of the Rings movies – from the the Balrog encounter in the Mines of Moria to the battle of Pelennor Fields.
Announcing the book, David Brawn, Publisher of Estates at HarperCollins in London, said:
‘It is now 15 years since the first of The Lord of the Rings films was released, and more than 60 years since we published the books on which they were based, and yet the affection for Middle-earth remains as high as ever.
HarperCollins has a tradition of publishing very successful tie-in books based on the iconic film trilogies The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and it is a particular pleasure to be able to respond to a growing demand from fans with a colouring book that will allow them to revisit favourite scenes from the films in such a unique way.’
The book will be published worldwide on June 2, and is priced at £9.99. No word on pre-orders just yet, but when we’ll let you know when we hear something!
