Russian version of The Hobbit

Thanks to boingboing.net, by way of filkertom for this link. Scans of the art from a Russian edition of The Hobbit (though for some weird reason the poster headed it "Lord of the Rings"), along with some clips from an old Russian TV-movie of same. I found it delightful.

There is a running joke in the Russian internet quoting a Ukrainian translation of the Hobbit that in a lake beneath the caves there live "old Gam-Gam, a slimy monster," (Gollum), with the comment, "Tolkien is not as scary as they translate him."
