This morning, Mondo and Olly Moss revealed a set of posters that we’ve all been waiting a long, long time to see here at Limited Paper:  Moss’ take on Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings.  This particular print has been rumored for months now—and was heavily rumored to be dropping at a previous Mondo-related event—but should anyone be surprised that we’re seeing it drop on the eve of the release of Peter Jackson’s latest trip to Middle Earth (The Hobbit, if you’ve been living under a rock)?

Wanna see Olly Moss’ take on The Lord of The Rings?  Find out where you can pick one of these up tomorrow?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Let’s just cut through the bullshit and get straight to the money shot(s).  Tomorrow, Mondo News will let you know when the following posters are available via the Mondo website:

  • Lord of The Rings by Olly Moss
  • 15x36”
  • $50 regular edition of 580

Mondo-Olly-Moss-LOTR-reg

  • Lord of The Rings by Olly Moss
  • 15x36”
  • $90 variant edition of 285

Mondo-Olly-Moss-LOTR-variant

At some point tomorrow morning/early afternoon/mid-day/who knows Mondo will send out a Tweet (via @MondoNews) to let us know when these are up for purchase on their site.  At that point, it’ll be up to you to get through the checkout process without losing your sanity.  We humbly suggest that everyone just pretend that they’re Frodo (or Sam, if that’s your thing) attempting to get through the last leg of their trip to Mordor.  Perhaps that’ll give you the strength to make it through this alive.

Good luck everyone!  As always, if you’re an artist or gallery with artwork you’d like to see featured on Limited Paper (or if you’re just some lucky bastard who happened to overhear a bit of poster-related gossip while standing in the bushes outside Martin Ansin’s house) we wanna hear from you!  Email Limited Paper directly at LimitedPaper@gmail.com, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!

    Sex. Complete and utter sex for my eyes.

    DAMMIT! Why did I waste my money on the Olly Moss Dark Knight Rises print before seeing a movie I ended up not liking (even though the poster is still boss)?

    I need this! …might just have to buy the $50 edition anyway.

    Wow. those are really lame. Not only as LOTR-themed posters, but as graphic design. Typeface is off, the emphasis on the sword shard is extremely distracting, the composition is not balanced, and the words at the top frankly suck. What a waste of time and money. But of course, wannabe-hipster fanboys will eat it up, solely because of the name brand, despite all lack of artistic integrity. Mom-and-pop commercialism is still commercialism. NOT ART.

    • Pocketses

      Wow, talk about being a wannabe hipster, your mock-pretentious knowledge just makes you come off as an elitest douche without cause. If you don’t like it, good for you, no need to attempt to insult people who do like the art. Not to mention Olly Moss is a well respected and accomplished member of the community of artists that Mondo uses. They’re widely seen as some of the best “fine art” versions of movie posters around.

      Art is a matter of interpretation, if you don’t like it, that’s perfectly fine. But if someone does, there is nothing at all “hipster” about it. They like it because it does. Calling something soulless commercialism is ignorant and has literally nothing to do with whether or not someone enjoys this. I don’t know who fucked with your happiness, but there is literally no provocation for your ignorant and hateful post.

        They like it because they do*

      Actually, the typeface is perfect. The composition is balanced, and if you knew that then you’d understand the purpose of the blade. If you knew anything about compositional design, you would understand that Olly’s piece is very well constructed.

    • REALLY?

      Considering I didn’t even notice the sword on my initial look at this piece I find it hard to believe that it is “extremely distracting”.

      If you don’t like, don’t buy it…. enough said.

    • Robin

      The “emphasis” on the “shard” is due to it also resembling a the side of a mountain–which is why Golum is hanging from the side of it.
      I’m sure someone with such keen eyes for composition, etc., already knew that before you glanced, spoke, and walked away sounding like a d-bag.

      I would say more, but it seems other commenters have already said enough…

    Hmm. At first I couldn’t tell what the sword shard was supposed to be. On close inspection I suspected it might be Narsil, but it took a while to see that Sauron’s tower was supposed to form part of the hilt. It’s a cool poster, but is it perhaps a little too on the clever side? It’s weird to see the Evil All-Seeing Eye incorporated into a symbol of good.

    Also, anyone else notice they went with the Fellowship version of Sauron’s Eye, not the cats-eye version they went with for the latter two films?
