"In a whole in the ground, there lived...a Hobbit."
Balbo, a very popular Lord of the Rings LEGO builder, has created the iconic "Red Book of Westmarch." You may recognize this book as the keeper of both Frodo and Bilbo's writings, containing their stories and their adventures of Middle-earth. Just seeing this build come through my Flikr stream made me want to pull out a copy of the Lord of the Rings and start watching the trilogy again. I also really want to open up this book and read the text within (even though I've read both stories multiple times). If Tolkien was still alive, I believe he would be very pleased with this recreation, along with many other great LOTR creations. Keep it up, Balbo!
