Issue 144: Lord of the Granny Rings

by 4

Inspired by the works of Tolkien, Sanny leads his merry crew on an adventure through lands that could easily double for Middle Earth. Words & Photography Sanny With book sales well in excess of 150 million and the box office-smashing success of Peter Jackson’s trilogy, the places of Middle Earth are almost as familiar to us as the real world.
