The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Thorin's Map - Prop Replica


**Only 2 In Stock in the UK**

**UK and European Union sells, Save as there are No extra VAT, Duty and Royal Mail Handling Fees to pay**


Every great adventure needs a treasure map and in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the map was created by Thror, grandfather of Thorin Oakenshield


It shows not only the lay of the land, but also detailed instructions. Some clear as day, some concealed


Thorin's Map is an exquisite piece of art from the 3 Foot 7 Art Department


Hand crafted by calligrapher and artist Daniel Reeve, who made the original prop used in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, this is an absolutely authentic replica


Daniel has scanned his original map and digitally printed it on high-quality watercolour paper as used in the films


Daniel explains the choice of paper: "The Map is made on 190gsm Rough S&W watercolour paper. A lovely surface for painting, with a nicely random tooth. Care must be taken when doing calligraphy on this surface, as the texture can easily catch the nib, or guide it in unintended directions!"


Daniel then commences the process of 'breaking down' the map. Breaking down is the art of giving the prop believability. Adding a history to it and making it look real


Daniel painstakingly applies every crease and every wrinkle by hand, 'distressing' the paper to achieve an authentic looking prop replica


The reverse of the map is coloured black, except for the outlines of the famous Moon Runes that play a part in the story. This allows you to see the runes when the map is held up against the light or framed with back lighting


Daniel Reeve reveals that:

“Creating these things for the films was such a pleasure - but after their fleeting moments in the movie, they’re gone. So it’s fantastic now to be able to faithfully reproduce them for fans, to own for themselves, and enjoy all the detail that went into them, the detail that can never be fully appreciated on screen.”


Each individual map is the work of one man and totally unique


Daniel Reeve's craft is indeed a rare one and this is a prop replica the likes of which are few and far between


Available in strictly limited supply, Thorin's Map includes a printed Certificate of Authenticity signed by hand by Daniel Reeve. It ships folded in a vinyl bag in a Please Do Not Bend Cardboard Backed Envelope
