Oh, Amazon.com and UK has the following tantalizing lead (or dead end):

"The success of the "Lord of the Rings" movies has overshadowed the fact that Tolkien's words have been inspiring artists for more than 60 years, and there have been many visual interpretations of his books. This collection of 40 postcards gathers together a few of the most successful: the work of Alan Lee and John Hope, whose work formed the basis of the film's rich imagery; the art of Ted Nasmith, official artist of "The Silmarillion" and creator of one of the best-loved of all the Tolkien Calendars; plus a range of artists from those approved by J.R.R. Tolkien himself, such as Pauline Baynes and Cor Blok, to a generation of fantasy artists for whom Tolkien has inspired their best work."
Listed as a hardcover re-issue from 2004 (note the 40 cards instead of the standard 20 as well). No image available, and no copies for sale. Not sure if this exists, haven't seen any copies on the used market either.
