Bilbo Baggins doesn't know it yet, but as he gazes across his beloved Hobbiton and breathes the chill morning air, his life is about to change. Drastically.
An adventurous spirit is not a quality prized among Hobbit folk, so the formerly respectable Bilbo’s sudden departure comes as much as a surprise to him as it is to his neighbours. He blames it on the Tookish blood in his veins. That side of the family was always the most odd and taken to unhobbity impulses of curiosity.
And indeed Bilbo will come to count on every ounce of Took in him to save himself and his companions once the journey begins.
The moment has been expertly captured by Gus Hunter - long time Weta conceptual designer who started on The Lord Of The Rings trilogy alongside Jeremy Bennett and was an early adopter of the digital painting techniques Weta uses today. Read more about Gus in our Meet the Crew interview.
An Unexpected Journey joins our exclusive suite of Middle-earth art prints by Weta artists:
The external dimensions of the print are 23.2 in x 11.7 in (590 mm x297 mm) and the printed area is 20.9 in x 8.9 in (530 mm x 235 mm). A lovely cinematic format. Exactly the same size as the previously released prints.

This is a stunning print that looks great framed and hung on your wall. It differs in appearance to other prints in that it appears to use some digital elements providing more realism, yet maintaining the 'print' look. Hide.
