Maximum cards and stamps were designed by Sacha Lees at Peter Jackson’s WETA Workshop. Set comes in clear, archival-quality protective sleeve, and includes a hard-to-find NZ Post brochure containing extensive background information on Fellowship stamp release and epic movie it honours. As these officially authorized post cards sold out faster than anticipated, stock is VERY limited. A second ‘The Two Towers’ set was issued in December 2002 and a third ‘The Return of the King’ set was released in November 2003 to commemorate the Middle-earth movie trilogy.
