Congratulations to our Tolkien Book Cover Redesign Contest Winners!

Congratulations to the winners of our Tolkien Reading Day Book Cover Redesign Contest! We had 19 spectacular entries for this competition and it’s been difficult choosing the winners but here are the two covers the staff at Middle-earth News have decided are the best.

Our grand prize winner is Avadal! Her beautiful colored pencil cover design for The Hobbit is quite stunning. You can follow her on Twitter @avadal13.
