The pinnacle of high fantasy worlds, Tolkein’s MIddle Earth has been in the public imagination for the best part of a century. The Lord of the Rings books are undoubtedly his masterpiece, formed from an Anglo-centric vision of good, evil and the world. The Shire, in the West, is a glorious representation of England’s pleasant pastures green. Home, where our heroes just want to get back to. And then there is Mordor in the East, where evil and darkness always threatens to overwhelm the West. Are you seeing any parallels to 1950s politics here? Even if it is a little dated, the adventures of all the noble elves, dwarves and warriors still capture our imagination. And the films and video games did a pretty good job of championing fantasy and bringing it into the mainstream. So, of course, we have an excellent collection of Lord of the Rings merchandise, gifts and collectables ready for you to dive into.
