As you know, we’re currently conducting our pledge drive to raise funds and keep our servers running. We also have some very exciting auctions going on over at Ebay.
There are some fabulous, exclusive pieces up for grabs – including some things which, usually, money can’t buy! Time is running out on some of our auctions too, so best check them out now. Here are just three that might tickle your fancy:
Tauriel Poster signed by its artist David Powell / Rosie the Riveter
Autographed by David Powell, Senior Designer of Badali Jewelry and lifelong Tolkien fan. Powell is the designer and original artist of this new Hobbit-inspired poster of Elf Warrior Tauriel. Her pose resembles the WWII American propaganda poster Rosie the Riveter reflecting the power of the female worker at war time. Measures at 18×24 inches.
Hobbit Canvas Tote Swag Book Bag SIGNED BY Dwalin & Bifur
PICTURES OF AUTOGRAPHS ADDED 🙂
This canvas book bag/tote/swag bag is signed in purple sharpie by Dwarves Dwalin (Graham McTavish) and Bifur (William Kircher) at 2013 DragonCon for TORn’s Fundraiser. This NEW autographed tote sports the picture of the Misty Mountains drawn by JRR Tolkien for the 1937 cover of his (then) new book, The Hobbit.
Made by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishers, the bag is durable, measures at 14″ high x 12″ wide, and is not available at stores.
The winner may have to endure a bit of a delay in this UNIQUE bag’s shipment as it is still at DragonCon in Atlanta, GA with our TORn reps. They still have a long journey home after the Convention.
Children of Hurin Bookmarks signed by Dwalin
PICTURE OF AUTOGRAPH ADDED 🙂 Discoloration is from the lighting when picture was taken.
Unavailable for sale, this limited special-edition Bookmark accompanied the 500 1st editions of JRR Tolkien’s The Children of Hurin at the special 2007 release in NYC. These 500 editions contained a bookplate with the signatures of Christopher Tolkien (editor) and Alan Lee (artist). This auction is only for one of those unique Bookmarks (NOT for the book).
This Bookmark is even MORE special now with an autograph by Graham McTavish (Dwalin) for TORn’s Fundraiser while at 2013 DragonCon.
