Pierre Vinet Bilbo and Frodo-TEASER

Heavens! I almost missed the Baggins Birthday! I am out of town on a family visit and forgot all about it. Happily, jan-u-wine reminded me in time. This is only a re-post, but raise your glasses with me.

I am sure you all know the images from which the manip is made. Pierre Vinet's FOTR publicity stills are as well-known as they are beautiful.

Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo!

Thank you, Pierre Vinet

I can't express how much I love this man's portraits of the trilogy characters. What a way he had of capturing his subjects. I bow my head in memory of this gifted artist whose work has so enriched my love of The Lord of the Rings.

To commemorate his work, I am linking an entry I made a few years ago, presenting scans of his gorgeous black and white portraits from the 2007 calendar.

ETA: Quint, of Ain't It Cool News has done a very nice commemorative piece on Vinet, with lots of pictures. Here is the link.
