Great to hear you got your book, Trotter. One question... Does it happen to have the nice hand-cut hole on the side like the Hobbit and LotR had, or is it solid like the CoH and Silmarillion?

Also, would love to see photos! I am afraid I must wait for my copy as I am stuck getting the Amazon version since Tolkien.co.uk will not ship this one to the U.S.

Just received my copy of the book.

The FAQ on the http://tolkien.co.uk/Footer/Pages/FAQ.aspx website states that the book is signed and numbered by Alan Lee but this is not the case, it is only signed (not numbered) by Alan Lee on the title page.

It is identical to the other current editions but a light green colour and has a red, gold and silver foil motif designed by Alan Lee on the front cover.

For people in the UK, the BBC are currently showing a series on BBC4 called Picture Book, which is a series telling the enchanting story of childhood reading looks at books that help us with the growing pains of our early adolescence and teens.

From a Tolkien perspective, the second episode in the Series Now We Are Six, still available on BBC iPlayer, contains a section on C.S. Lewis and the illustrator of his Narnia books, Pauline Baynes.

Tonight's episode at 9pm has the Lord of The Rings included and as the episode is about illustrators then it may also include Alan Lee, John Howe or Ted Naismith.

I have rather assumed that, like last year, I can buy one from René van Rossenberg. I don't think ordering and paying in the US would be any cheaper for me (with paypal costs and postage), rather the reverse. I have been planning going to René (for other stuff) for some weeks and ask him about it, but haven't found the time yet. So, one way or the other, I've missed entering for the draw.

I hope to find time to visit René this week, but of course he won't have received any calendars yet - I'll see him 3rd of January at least.

Would be interested to hear what number they have gotten up to so far when the book turns up. My guess would be around about the 300 mark, maybe slightly lower.

Can't see a great deal more being sold in the current climate, but the price is certainly good for US customers at this point, whilst the USD is artificially high.
