Hobbiton

April 4, 2010

Hobbiton is a village in The Shire, a region of J. R. R. Tolkien‘s fictional Middle-earth, described in many of his works. It refers to an area settled exclusively by Hobbits and largely removed from the goings-on in the rest of Middle-earth. Hobbiton is the village where Bag End is located, this is the home of Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins, where both of Tolkien’s works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings begin and end.

Many years ago Peter Jackson decided to turn The Lord of the Rings into movies. The filming took a long time, they started in 1999, and the third and last movie was released in december 2003.

This bookmark comes from Hobbiton’s movie set in Matamata, NZ. Cathie sent 2 postcards along with it, which show some photos. Thank you for everything you’ve sent !!!
