Right hand side panel of slipcase.
This is the
left hand section of the artwork by Pauline Baynes.
It features a scene with the Fellowship and what is
probably a Hobbit village in the foreground, fading into rivers and mountains in the distance. In the far distance are two
green peaks and one white peak - these may be Amon Hen, Amon Lhaw and Tol Brandir at the head of the Falls of Rauros. This
panel could then represent the journey undertaken in the first volume of The Lord of the Rings - The
Fellowship of the Ring.
Each panel of the slipcase is made from a separate piece of board. The two sides and the
back panel are covered by the artwork printed on cartridge paper. The top and bottom panels are covered with black linson, as is the
inside of the slipcase.
