All stamps in the The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring 20th Anniversary stamp issue were based on original artworks by Sacha Lees. Three of these paintings have been issued as limited-edition art prints. These hand-signed prints include a cancelled stamp and limited-edition number. A great gift for any The Lord of the Rings fan, only 250 of each print have been produced.
As their quest begins, Frodo and his hobbit friends Sam, Pippin and Merry drink ale at the Prancing Pony in Bree, where they first meet Aragorn. The Bree scenes were filmed at former army camp Fort Dorset in Seatoun, Wellington.
