This is a detailed linocut image of Gimli played by John Rhys-Davies from Lord of the Rings, which has been printed onto upcycled pages from The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien. This is a limited edition, handmade linoprint.
This print is part of a set of characters from the Fellowship of the Ring made up from Gandalf, Samwise, Frodo, Legolas, Boromir, Aragorn and the hobbits Merry and Pippin.
This is a unique gift for bibliophiles and movie buffs. Due to the nature of a linocut print and using different pages from the book no two prints can ever be the same as each other.
Linocut or linoprinting is a method where the artist carves into lino and uses it to produce a negative picture. An impression of this can then be taken to produce the picture positive. It can be extremely difficult and frustrating as one mistake can destroy the work or leave you with an injury, the tools are extremely sharp!
