Cover Art Is Important

I think the pictures in this post explain the concept better than I ever could. I personally find the 1965 covers to evoke the proper feeling required to immerse oneself into the story; the new movie-based covers...eh. Anyone else feel that way?

  1. I think the 1973 covers will always be my favorites.

  2. '73 covers are awesome. Probably just nostalgia driving my preference though.

  3. The Ballantine 1973 are far and away my favorites. The ones I had originally and the ones I believed drawn by Tolkien himself, right?

  4. I like the ones with the Hildebrant Bros. paintings.
