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!

"What a bargain!!!
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-P ... 2|39%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50"


The seller has updated his listing but it still makes no sense and reads like a Nigerian 419 email (ALL IN CAPS), I can't find any sale on Beren's site at the prices quoted.

"NB - BEING AN ORIGINAL LIMITED EDITION THE LAST SALE OF THE SAME BOOK SOLD FOR $950 {£600} THROUGH THE TOLIEN (sic) LIBRARY.CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE-

I,M (sic) NOT GOING TO PUSH THIS SALE- ITS (sic) A GOOD SALE PRICE - MY ITEMS ON EBAY NEED TO FIND THE RIGHT BUYER- AND IT (sic) WILL "


Update - The text above has now been removed from the listing, I assume the seller looks at this site, as they also keep changing the price (need to reduce it to 10% to get a sale though)

However, my total also comes to six because I have in addition 'The Brothers Hildebrandt - Their Tolkien Art'(Running Press, 2001).

Twelve postcards; and, they're magnetic!


As I only collect UK editions, for me these don't count, but it may be useful to document any non UK Postcard Books
