Yesterday was an amazing day on the #TolkienCollection tag, due in large part to this tweet from the Tolkien Society!
Below you’ll find lots of photos as people celebrated the anniversary of the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Remember, if you want to see your photos in our daily post, use the hashtags #TolkienCollection and/or #CollectAThing so we can track them down. To make it really easy, you could tag us @CollectTolkien on Twitter and @collectathing on Instagram!

The Return of the King is 60 years old today!! This is the revised second edition (my copy is from 1973). This is how I remember seeing the book for the very first time. I'd just started reading The Hobbit as a kid and I can remember leafing through The Return of the King in the school library and being totally enchanted by the concept of 'Appendices', hobbit family trees, lists of Kings, and especially the tables of runes.. I think that was the exact moment I got properly hooked..! #jrrtolkien #rotr #lordoftherings #tolkien #returnoftheking #books #runes #lotr #tolkiencollection #tolkienfan
