UK Daily Deals: The Hobbit Illustrated Edition Preorders Now Live

Must read

HarperCollins has announced a new illustrated edition of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic The Hobbit. The book will include 50 paintings, maps, and drawings made by Tolkien himself, and will be available in hardcover on September 14, alongside a beautiful Deluxe Illustrated Edition.

TL;DR – Our Handpicked Best Deals

Both are available to preorder now and if you order from Amazon UK you can secure either of the new editions with a decent discount as well. Plus, with Amazon's preorder price guarantee, you'll pay whatever the listing's lowest price is from now until the release day, September 14. Not only that, but you'll pay nothing until the book is dispatched closer to the release day, so you've got time to change your mind if you need to.

We also have an exclusive look at one of Tolkien's illustrations from the book if you're interested in seeing more of it before securing the new edition. There are a whole lot more deals to check out just below, but for now, you can stay up to date with all your Daily Deals and savings by following @IGNUKDeals on Twitter.

It's also quarterbound in green leather, with raised ribs on the spine, stamped in three foils on black cloth boards, and housed in a custom-built clothbound slipcase. The pages are edged in gold and include a ribbon marker.

The Hobbit is the latest in line to get the illustrated treatment. There’s The Lord of the Rings Illustrated, which came out in 2021, and The Silmarillion Illustrated, which arrived last autumn. The Hobbit Illustrated will feature a forward by Christopher Tolkien, with additional notes from Tolkien scholars Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull.
