Matt Ferguson’s First Limited Edition Letterpress Prints Rock Middle Earth

U.K. artist Matt Ferguson creates awesomeness on a daily basis.  He is now trying his hand with letterpress prints and the end result is highly craveable.  For his first foray in this medium he has chosen to give fans 2 wonderful prints, one for Lord of the Rings and the other for The Hobbit.

So I found myself thinking about how that would make a good piece of art, the perfect summation of “There And Back Again”. Once the idea popped into my head it all seemed so simple, why not make it all one piece with the ring and then the different locations/events that happen on the outside of it all going round in circle. I then applied the same idea to the Hobbit but instead of using a ring I thought it would be cool to use a hexagon motif, as it reminded me of the angular aspect of Dwarf society, it also just so happened that I could fit some dwarf writing into that shape better as well. I really couldn’t believe no one had come up with a similar idea before! I love it when a plan comes together.”
