SAVE ON THESE WHEN YOU BUY WITH Red Book
This book is fantastic - less a prop and more a true work of art. I don't really know where to start, or how to add to what other reviewers have already said. I haven't yet had the opportunity to do much more than flip through the pages but this book is exquisite. The deep red leather is perfect and looks aged to the same degree as the pages. The tooling and embossing details... Read More

There must have been some allergens around when I opened the package, because my eyes got a little misty. This is a beautiful & loving recreation of the prop from the film, and I could not be more pleased. This is now my favorite piece in my entire collection.

This is truly a work of art!! As an avid book-lover/budding collector and a lover of all things Tolkien; I had high hopes and expectations for this book. I actually worried that I may have set my hopes too high- boy was I wrong! This “Red Book” (of Westmarch/ Periannath) BLEW ME AWAY. Truly. Not only does it feel like it is old enough to be the "real thing"; it also... Read More

Words really cannot describe how beautiful this book is. I ordered the full written version and I didn't regret a second. I really love the attention to details like the different handwritings, the little side notes or crossed out words. This book really feels like coming straight from Middle Earth... Read More

Don't hesitate to buy this if you're considering it. It's truly a work of art, and I couldn't be happier with it. The amount of care and research that must've gone into this is astounding. Thank you Magnoli Props!!

This magnificent book has the uncanny effect of instilling a sense that you are, without a doubt, holding a genuine artifact of the past. Things that stood out to me were the old-wolrd smell, the feel of the aged leather and paper, the incredible craftsmanship, the stunning attention to detail, and the extra-literature research that went into this project (Bilbo's...

This book is $%#&ing incredible! Beautiful and compelling retelling of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings that genuinely reads as though it was written by Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam, with accompanying marginalia and art in the style of each author. This Red Book of Westmarch genuinely feels like an artifact from Middle Earth... Read More

Now when I stumbled onto the web site and saw the images for the Red Book of Westmarch, I thought that this would make for a nice addition to my Tolkien book collection. But then after receiving the book in the mail and looking through it; those online images did not do it justice! This replicated copy is beautifully hand rendered and surpasses my expectations, a definite... Read More

I just received the Red Book of Westmarch, and it has far surpassed my expectations. The effort and detail that went into this book is evident the moment you unwrap it. The manner in which it was written and the corresponding illustrations nearly convinced me that this was Bilbo's journal. I will treasure it forever and highly recommend it... Read More

I love it. Amara (my daughter) gifted me this book for Christmas. I have been a fan of LotR since I was 12 years old, and one of my favorite details is how Tolkien recites the lineage of the book containing his story at the beginning ("a Note on Shire Records"). Decades ago, I came across a special edition bound in red to simulate the Red Book of the Periannath, but could... Read More

This book is incredible. The craftsmanship and detail is extraordinary and absolutely beautiful. I love the fact that Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam all have their own writing styles. I could go on and on about how the amazing drawings and maps. If you are a die hard LOTR fan, this book is a must have.

Part 2 It should be clear that this is Bilbo's account of his adventure and Frodo's account of his (with added brief material relating to Sam, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli). Thus it does not cover the adventures of Merry and Pippin in Fangorn, Rohan, and Gondor. Also it is faithful to the book narrative, not the PJ films: Crickhollow, Old Man Willow, the Barrow Wight,...

Just got the book, the quality is astonishing and worth the price as it is so unique! Would get it a second time if I had not one yet, a must have for lotr purists!

This is a wonderfully remarkable artifact. The high quality paper, the layout, the fonts, the illustrated items, the leather cover are all exquisite. It is interesting to experience the tale from what one would academically call the ur-text from which the 2oth century editor J. Tolkien filled out in his version of the narratives. The various writers (BIlbo,... Read More

I just received this today as a Christmas gift from my father. As a fan of the movies and the books this was truly incredible. The amount of detail contained within the book itself was amazing. I was (and still am) speechless regarding it. Everything in the book is incredibly well done, and I was awed by the seemingly minuscule details that were included... Read More

I just got mine so I haven't read it yet, but after taking a careful look at it, I must say it has exceed my expectations (which were already very high as I knew exactly what I was buying and how full it was of drawings, poems, maps and family trees). It is bigger, thicker and more awesome than expected. The quality of its materials and its handwriting is astonishing... Read More

The quality of the Red Book exceeded my expectations. The leather embossing and tooling are exquisite and the aged quality comes through in the treatment of the pages. Probably most surprising to me is the text itself, sometimes quoting from Tolkien, sometimes not. I found the text to be very emotive, and the side notes to be humorous and moving. Very pleased with... Read More

Upon receiving the package with the book you feel as if the postmaster of the Shire just send you the Red Book of Westmarch right from Undertowers. Everything from the handmade leather binding to the aged paper and of course the authentic handwritings of Bilbo, Frodo and Sam just feel as if crafted in Middleearth. You just feel as if the story you know and love was... Read More

This is a very stunning book! I and many others that have seen it all love it. it reads just like a normal book and I very much love all the drawing and art work.

A gorgeous piece from the beautiful binding to the perfectly replicated and imaginative handwriting and drawings - not to mention the text itself (what a nice interpretation of how Bilbo describes his coming by the ring). A truly magnificent work.

This is just a superb piece of craftsmanship! It is very detailed, just can't wait to add to my LOTR collectibles. Very recommended for every LOTR collector, this is a MUST for us. Thank you so much for bringing this Red Book for us.

How can I begin to describe this wonderful book? It's as if someone reached into Middle Earth and pulled out the real thing. This is not a replica prop. This is a TREASURE. I cannot possibly say how happy I am with this purchase, which even arrived ahead of schedule. Fantastic.
15 April 2018
This is a serious collectorâ€™s piece. The astoshing detail taken to create the beautiful book is amazing. Itâ€™s my own precious! I love it! For the price, it is absolutely worth it.
19 March 2018
This book looks fantastic. It was meant to be a present but it was so well done it's hard to give away. I ordered the one with blank pages, as I want it to become a travel journal for someone who's a huge LOTR fan. I can only imagine how awesome the full replica would be. Exceeded my expectations.
29 December 2017
My order arrived and the red book is stunning ! Thank you for this incredible piece of art. Will buy again soon from you guys !
29 September 2017
I got the RB today, it's SIMPLY breath taking. A true work of art. Most appreciated for the speedy delivery too. In time for the Xmas, ya! I must say this is my BEST Xmas/ New Year gift ever, and will certainly be one of my most treasured items.
20 July 2017
This is the holy grail of LOTR props. Every little detail is so well done that it really does seem like it was created ages ago by Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam themselves. From the custom leather cover to the aged pages with calligraphy, everything about this creates an item that brings you right back to the world that collectors like me know and love. This will always be proudly... Read More
