Real life has been intruding, so I haven't done much on the Tolkien front for quite some time.

I did manage to get down to the exhibition at the weekend though - it was good to see some familiar faces and meet some new people. Ted Nasmith's new illustrations for the George RR Martin books were fantastic, and Jef Murray's artwork was very striking when seen close up.

There was also a small exhibition of Tolkienalia including his panama hat, a letter to his brother, a letter from Mabel Tolkien to her sister (dated 1894), signed first editions of The Hobbit and Tom Bombadil, some unpublished photos and (courtesy of Beren) a selection of books from his library.

Ah, that explains why my copy hasn't turned up yet! I had just emailed the publisher to ask where it was.

Thanks for the information - I can't wait to read it.

Some of that text looks strangely familiar...
