I always loved the look of the scenic teaser posters for the first two films and thought it would be nice to do a set based on them.
The trouble was that the advance poster for "The Return of the King" deviated from their past style and featured a close up of Aragorn.
Fortunately, the "Art of The Return of the King" featured the style I was looking for on it's front cover. I imagine that shot was originally
going to be used for the theatrical poster art until the studio decided to go in another direction by featuring their characters more.

Displayed below are my newest set of Lord of the Rings covers.

These covers are for both the Theatrical and Extended Editions of "The Lord of the Rings". Each cover will fit a 6 or 7 disc Alpha case, depending on whether you bought the Extended Edition's Gift Set which included a fifth bonus disc. They were inspired by the fine book-like cases that came with the Extended Editions.
