The Fellowship of the Ring book cover

The cover of the J.R.R Tolkien book The Fellowship of the Ring. This is the first book of Tolkien's mighty trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, in which Frodo Baggins is the key player. This particular cover is from the American paperbacks released by Ballantine Books in the 1970s; the cover painting of the Shire and Bag End is by author J.R.R Tolkien himself. What couldn't that guy do?
