Printed on or not, it does look like a one-off. Christina and I have never seen this before, and (echoing Deagol) any official promo surely would have used Pauline Baynes's art and identified a publisher. Another suggestion of homemade production is that the text on the left panel twice has "is" for "was" compared with the published poem.

Given that the artwork doesn't appear to be by Pauline Baynes, I think it unlikely to have been produced by Allen & Unwin or Houghton Mifflin.

It looks homemade to me. Perhaps someone experimenting with printing techniques? If it was a commercial item wouldn't it have a name or some kind of identification?

The images on this item appear to have been printed on. Doubt it is fan made.

Looks awesome, but I have never seen it before and don't recall any mention of it. Hoping someone else has more info...

could it be a fan-made item?

Described as a promo item that was released with the Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Criteria 1962. It is made of a composite paper material and has cloth hinges and closes to about the size of a trading card. Any help identifying the origin and date of this item would be appreciated.
