Are tolkien collectors the most hardcore completeists?

It seems like most collectors of other authors mostly want first editions. Tolkien collectors seem to be more "completeist" in their approach.

What do you think?

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

http://www.amazon.com/Tolkiens-Lord-R ... tcard-Book/dp/0007157576/

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tolkiens-Hobb ... -R-Tolkien/dp/0007157576/

"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.

Thanks guys,

I started the Guide section for these since it has come up -

Postcards and Cards Guide page

I haven't had time to dig out my own postcard books to add additional information, so if any of you are so inclined to help fill things out that would be great!

I also combined the postcard books with the greeting cards section, so I started to fill out the GA&U card sets from the 70s that are so cool - not sure if you would consider those sets the same as your postcard books, but I like them nonetheless!

Also, I noted that the 2003 Hildebrandt postcard calendar is still available from their gallery store:

http://www.spiderwebart.com/productsd.asp?snob=103991

You can get it signed by Greg still if you request that.

Good topic guys!

Created a new Calendar of the Month for August on the homepage of:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

It is a rather rare calendar (at least in its original envelope.) Hope you enjoy it and comments welcome!
