Stamps Celebrate 2nd The Lord Of The Rings Movie


Stamps Celebrate Second The Lord Of The Rings Movie

Featuring hobbits and orcs, New Zealand Post's latest stamp issue, which will be released on Wednesday 4 December, celebrates the second film in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Stamps General Manager, Ivor Masters said the six stamps and associated products portray characters and scenes from the much-anticipated movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers(tm).

"Each image featured on the stamps and other New Zealand Post collectable products contributes to this amazing epic and gives people a good feel for the movie and its stunning cinematography."

Aragorn the ranger and Lady Éowyn feature on the 40c stamp, a stark contrast to the Orc Raider which appears on the 80c stamp.

Wizard Gandalf sheds his grey mantle to become Gandalf the White on the 90c stamp and human servants of the Dark Lord Sauron - the Easterlings - feature on the $1.30 stamp.

With a fearful expression on his face, the hobbit Frodo adorns the $1.50 stamp, while the $2.00 stamp features Lady Éowyn, despairing of what her world has become.

Other products available include three first day covers, six miniature sheets, six maximum cards and a presentation pack.

"Last year's stamp issue of the first movie was one of the most popular ever so we're expecting The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers(tm) to be equally well-received," Mr Masters said.

The stamps were designed by Sacha Lees, Weta Workshop, Wellington and printed by Southern Colour Print, Dunedin.

Products are available at all New Zealand Post retail outlets, including Books & More or from the New Zealand Post stamps website www.stamps.co.nz.
