Thanks for letting others know of the BB calendar. It's their first since 1994, and they got Tim Kirk to contribute (which I regard as a coup!) As Nancy Martsch noted, proceeds benefit BB. If you don't subscribe, you should. Annual subscription is cheap, but the newsletter has excellent articles and lots of useful info. I ordered my copy last month!

I have a question -

>Festival in the Shire is a three day event that will cater to the diverse interests of collectors, academics and those who simply enjoyed the books and films. It will be held in the heart of ‘Tolkien country’, Machynlleth the ancient historical capital of Wales, with its rich Celtic traditions and stunning location in the hills.<

Can I respectfully ask - in what way is Machynlleth 'the heart of Tolkien country?

Thinking about the fact that all the copies (up to now) that anyone has seen are the smaller widths, could the larger set be a HarperCollins Proof set which was subsequently rejected for the smaller size slipcase.

The books are all priced and both the covers and bindings are identical apart from width. I don't have them in front of me at the moment but the internal printed sheets looked identical, but I'll check them again.

I'm going to measure the width of each of the books tonight, difficult as there is not much difference in size.

Our set is also 11.2 cm wide. It was bought in London, and Christina assumes that she got it as soon as it reached the shops.

Do both variants give the printing location as Glasgow, as ours does? Do both have the GBP14.99 price on the jacket flaps? Was the wider variant perhaps made for an overseas market, or for a book club edition, and separately printed? It seems less likely that HarperCollins would change the dimensions of binding cases and slipcase partway through the run, and more likely that the variants represent separate manufactures.

I'm wondering what caused the 0.7 cm difference in width. Thicker paper? Thicker boards?
