A great post from Beren on his website

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... ke_Tolkien_Signatures.php

I think that there is only one copy of the third letter down it has just been sold on eBay multiple times, it is the same letter that Bloomsbury Auctions were going to auction in 2008.

Thanks, Mark. Personally speaking, I didn't go to the 2010 Festival because I couldn't afford the £800 I'd have to find for two tickets plus four nights' accomodation.

As for 2012; the Tolkien Society is holding a special event of its own that year; 'The Ring Goes Ever On.' I shouldn't think many folk could aford two big events; but we'll see. Let's get 2011 out of the way first!

Happy New Year!

Latest email from Mark Faith about the Festival

Dear Festival in the Shire and Festival Art and Books Fan, Firstly, Happy and prosperous New Year! We’ve been really busy and there’s not been much new news worthy of sending an email earlier. Per on posts on the Facebook, Festival in the Shire- http://www.facebook.com/pages/Festiva ... pired/149452046749?ref=ts The next Festival is on hold until 2012 due to the poor economic climate. Sadly we had to discontinue the Festival magazine for lack of interest. Despite excellent survey results of the first festival, most of our fans are too distracted with economic worry to be able to think about attending another Festival. We have decided to wait a year. Hopefully things will improve for all of us in 2011. Our book/ art business has been really slow which is bad as this is one of the main fund raisers for another Festival. We suffered a huge financial loss putting on the first festival and can only go forward if sales of art and books pick up soon (or unless someone will donate or invest in the next Festival?) It was our business in Tolkien art and book market that first inspired the idea of holding a big Tolkien fan event. Although we were licensed to do the event, we weren’t allow to tell anyone which might have help raise investors. The main funding for the next festival can only come from sales of art/books without investors and patrons. Why not visit www.festivalartandbooks.com <http://www.festivalartandbooks.com/> make a purchase and help support the Festival effort? More importantly, help support our Tolkien inspired fantasy artist! Unless a current mega star artist working on a movie, most of our artists are struggling financially in these times. (The expression- starving artist is not new!) Nearly all have to work real jobs and to continue producing fantasy art need to sell prints and originals to justify the time spent. Without patrons, art production stops! Its that simple! If you’d like to see more Tolkien or fantasy art, help keep our artist employed and support the future Festival at the same time. If you can afford an original, great, otherwise why not buy a print? We recently picked up a new artist Michael Fishel. Rare Tolkien books remain one of the safest and consistent investments. While values rise sporadically, rarely if ever have the fallen. With the new film coming out, prices are bound to rise. Consider expanding you collection of art and books. We will keep you posted of any new news. Our current inventory is always changing. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional photos. Best wishes, Mark Faith Managing Director Festival in the Shire Festival Art and Books

The second letter (moon-lather) is the first of these fake letters that we saw referenced here (from 2 years ago)

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... ost_id=4424#forumpost4424

"This and one other signed letter are the last of a collection of Tolien(sic) items fakes."

Looks like he has managed to sell all the fakes thanks to eBay.
