After AIST-promoted calendar ‘Lords for the Ring’ proved a huge success last year, in both overall sales and public appreciation (with dedicated public exhibitions at world-known conventions such as Lucca Comics & Games and The Turin International Book Fair), the time has now come to renew the efforts.
The ‘Lords for the Ring’ team — a group of renowned fantasy artists led by Angelo Montanini — has gathered again under the AIST supervision with the ambitious goal to produce 14 illustrations for a brand new 2018 calendar to be entirely based on the Silmarillion, whose 40th anniversary occurs this year. We can expect visually stunning reinterpretations of such famous Tolkien tales as the beginnings of Arda or Beren and Lúthien, as well as epic battles and iconic characters depicted in an original, never-seen-before way.
The 2018 edition of the ‘Lords for the Ring’ calendar will première at Lucca Comics and Games 2017 — lasting from 1st to 5th November — which is also a supporter of the project. However, for anyone interested in securing in advance one or more copies (choosing among juicy options and rewards) the calendar will be available for purchase at the Eppela crowdfunding site starting 4th September 2017.
