Yes indeed - something like that. After I posted I started looking into my Yahoo-groups account. For some reason it had stalled. I've got it working again, but all the mailgroups on which the announcement was made, Lambengolmor, Elfling and Elfscript2, run on Yahoo-groups, so they were all affected. Other cares worritting at my mind, I hadn't noticed that the drip of group mails had dried up.

No fault of the ELF, therefore.

But it may be noted that Julian Bradfield's Tolklang mailgroup doesn't work on Yahoo, but on Edinburgh University servers; it may be barely alive, but it isn't dead yet; although it breathes maybe once a year nowadays.

ITF also runs on its own servers, but that of course isn´t open to the public. It is, however, intended for committees and editors, conference organisers and the like, of Tolkien societies and closely related organisations in good standing, for (among other things) announcing, even in advance, events, publications, etc., so that societies can then pass these on to their members (at the proper time).

Thats the one. Run by the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship. There was a post about PE 18 a couple of weeks ago. Maybe the mails aren't getting to you - spam trap issues or something?

ELF forum? Or do you mean the Lambengolmor e-mail list? That's were the announcements always are in the first place, of course. I'm subscribed to that and I haven't seen anything from it in months.

Well i think a certain Swiss collector might be interested too and no doubt there will be some interest in the States too.

Seeing it for the first time is one of those memories that will stay with me forever. I had sat looking at the drawing for 2 or 3 minutes making the mental connection between the shape of the house and the name of Lamb, both of which were familiar and the cogs were slowly whirring. before my eyes drifted to the bottom left corner, when I made out the letters in the mongram one by one T R R J

I think I said "It's a Tolkien picture" which was a bit daft considering the company at the time! But when i said "It's a Ronald picture" the look on peoples faces was wonderful! We spent the next half an hour trying to convince ourselves that it might not be an original, just a print, but looking at it under magnification showed it was original. The detail in the drawing is fascinating, and it makes a nice pair with the picture JRRT did later of the other side of the house.

Very honoured to have had the chance to see it up close, one of many gems I've been lucky enough to have seen (and touched!) over the last year or so.
