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.

I just picked up another copy of the Signed Limited Deluxe Children of Hurin from the Tolkien.co.uk website. As most of you know, they are now making it available to U.S. customers. It may be a blessing in disguise that this was not previously available in the U.S. since the dollar has gotten much stronger against the pound recently than it was back when the book was first released (it was 2:1 back then!). There is also a 10% off coupon code available now (TOLK01). That brings the price down to GBP 315.00 + GBP 5.00 shipping. At today's exchange rate, that is less than $500.00. I believe that is an excellent deal for a fully leather bound book signed by both Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee. If you have the cash now, this is great investment. I would expect that these won't be around for retail sale much longer (however, the poor economy probably will hinder sales, so I may be wrong).

A quick word about using the coupon code.... I tried to use it and it gave an error message saying that the code was invalid. However, after deleting it and progressing to checkout, the 10% discount was applied and the transaction was successful.

I don't mean to sound like a saleman for Harper Collins, but having already owned a copy of this book and knowing how much I enjoy it, I want to make sure that anyone else who might love this book gets an opportunity to pick it up at possibly the best price it will be before it is sold-out.
