The Unexpected Booklet project continues with the release of a fan booklet for the Extended Edition of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
TheHutt, editor of the Russian Tolkien site Henneth-Annun.ru, is the brains behind this project — a custom-designed, non-commercial booklet for each of the special editions of the Hobbit, that is consistent with the style established for The Lord of the Rings.
The reason for the project is that Warner Bros. chose to drop the inlay booklet concept from extended editions of The Hobbit. Not only was it nicely designed with sketches by John Howe and Alan Lee; it also had rather practical value for selecting the film chapters or navigating through the intricate maze of bonus material.
TheHutt has already released an inlay booklet for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Today, we’re delighted to announce the fan booklet for the second Extended Edition, The Desolation of Smaug. Simply select your appropriate version (DVD, BluRay 3D or BluRay 2D), print it out on your printer or in a copy shop and put it into your legally purchased The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug Special Extended Edition box.
PDFs for English, German and Russian language versions can all be downloaded at Henneth-Annun.ru.
