The Forgotten Fiction magazine is a part of Rune Works Productions and a new RW Rare Book Case is being shown here for the first time!
The Lord Of The Rings ACE Edition Rare Book Case
Ace published the first Paperback Editions of LOTR and in so doing created a ton of buzz – good and bad – that led to the historic American first pb edition of LOTR, which was unauthorized, becoming enormously popular in a short time.
Because the Ace paperbacks were affordable and being talked about all over the world, it propelled the successful book by Professor J.R.R. Tolkien to astronomical heights, making the book immensely popular in a short time.
Ace published in America because of a copyright loophole that Tolkien’s publisher’s fought vehemently and publicly.
What was also messed up is that the Professor was not initially paid royalties for sales and it was not until later that they would pay Tolkien his royalties, after which he even admitted to preferring the ‘bootleg’ edition’s artwork better because, unlike the first official paperback edition of The Lord of the Rings, Ace’s actually had artwork that was reflective of the story.
And so loving the books, and wanting to preserve this history I made myself a case by hand using woodworking and archival practices to ensure the historic volumes are displayed safely and in style!
It takes many weeks for a case to fully cure safely and so this project has been a long and arduous one that is finally come to fruition.
Fret not, though, there are a few more that some Eager Readers have requested that are going to be introduced over the next weeks.
The next up on the anvil for Rune Works Rare Book Cases include:
- The Stand case – one for UK and one for US 1st printings – BIG news coming later this week on this!
- “Gunslinger” Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction case
- A I of I creation customized for an issue of Astounding Fiction from 1953
- Startling Mystery 1967 and 1969 Case
- Fight Club case, with a strip of cartoon film?
- A Scanner Darkly case for the first edition of Philip K. Dick’s classic
- Revival Us First Edition for signed copies
- End Of Watch Us First Edition for signed copies
- If It Bleeds Us First Edition for signed copies
- The End Of Eternity Isaac Asimov case
