We've had LEGO, Peanuts, Woodstock, Star Wars, and Pac-Man themed notebooks, among other pop-culture treasures. Now Moleskine has added The Hobbit to its collection of special limited-edition notebooks.

Moleskine recently announced a series of Limited Edition Notebooks in anticipation of tomorrow's release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first film in the new trilogy based on the book The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, one of contemporary literature's most loved stories.

The Moleskine Hobbit Collection

There are four hardcover notebooks in The Moleskine Hobbit Collection in combinations of ruled, plain, pocket (9x14cm) and large (13x21cm). Each notebook features artwork inspired by JRR Tolkien's drawings that accompanied various editions of the novel. All four books also have the map of Wilderland tucked into the back pocket, which covers the area from the Misty Mountains in the west to the River Running in the east, with Mirkwood in the middle.

The two ruled notebooks in the series have a burgundy-red cover and are illustrated with the Lonely Mountain framed between two dragons, which are similar to JRR Tolkien's design that appeared on the cover of the first edition of the book. (Sadly the official Moleskine press images were all photographed with the removable band wrapped around the cover so you can't see the detail of the mountain, which is in the middle of the cover, in the image above, which also, erroneously, lists them as the "plain" notebooks.)

The plain notebooks are chestnut brown and have an illustration of a dragon hot-foil stamped into the cover in an attractive, reflective red foil, behind which is a silkscreen printed background that features a section of the Wilderland map.

Finally, all the notebooks have JRR Tolkien's "JRRT" monogram stamped into the spine and an illustration of the dragon Smaug on the flyleaf.

The notebooks are available worldwide at book stores or see the affiliate links on the right to order them online.
