Limited Paper: Mondo Announces a New Pair of LORD OF THE RINGS Posters from Mike Sutfin and Paolo Rivera

     January 23, 2013

mondo-lord-of-the-rings-sliceIt’s been mysteriously quiet in Poster World over the past week.  Indeed, it seems like many collectors are holding their breath in anticipation of…something…doesn’t it?  Rumors are circulating and strange bits of gossip are swirling around, all of them indicating that 2013’s first blockbuster print is on the verge of being dropped…but when?

Today’s announcement from the Mondo crew tells us they’ve got two snazzy-looking prints dropping this week, but neither print seems to fit the rumors we’ve heard.  That shouldn’t matter, though:  we may have to wait a little longer for something that fits the “blockbuster” description, but in the meantime this Thursday’s Lord of The Rings prints from Mike Sutfin and Paolo Rivera will do nicely.  Read all about ‘em after the jump, folks.

This may be the most slowly-moving news week in Limited Paper history, but it looks like the Mondo guys are still following their schedule:  they’re right on track with a Thursday drop featuring not one, not two, but three new Lord of The Rings prints (three if you count the variant, which we do).  Let’s take a look:

  • Precious Cargo by Paolo Rivera
  • 24×36”
  • $50 regular edition of 330


  • Servants of Sauron by Mike Sutfin
  • 24×36”
  • $50 regular edition of 285


  • Servants of Sauron by Mike Sutfin
  • 24×36”
  • $75 variant edition of 155


Boom, there they are.  As always, you just need to stay tuned to @MondoNews tomorrow to find out when the Mondo store will update with these prints, and then get through the checkout process before…oh, about two or three hundred of your fellow collectors.  Anyone unfortunate enough to make it through the checkout process by then will be met by a stark white screen and an audio file that causes  “THOU SHALL NOT PASS!” to thunder out of your speakers.

Good luck to all who are going after these!  As is always the case around here: if you’re an artist or gallery with artwork you’d like to see featured on Limited Paper (or if you’re just some lucky bastard who happened to overhear a bit of poster-related gossip while standing in the bushes outside Martin Ansin’s house) we wanna hear from you!  Email Limited Paper directly at, and be sure that you’re following us on Twitter via @LimitedPaper for ongoing commentary, news updates, giveaways, and more!
