It has twenty-three separate pieces in, ranging from two to twenty-four pages long. The book proper goes from page 1 to page 386; there are then sixteen pages of references and fifteen pages of index.

Binding is simple paperback, I think of the sort known as "perfect bound".

[Just seeking some info. here]

Anyone got Roots & Branches by Tom Shippey?

How many articles/pieces are actually in it? Amazon.co.uk cites it as 432 pgs; which seems quite large. And, I take it binding etc is as with other Walking Tree Publishers releases? Lastly does anyone think it likely that Amazon's current stock is anything other than 1st impressions? (what with Walking Tree Publishers being relatively small.)

Just thought I'd drop a note on Andy Compton's ADCbooks April 2008 A J R R Tolkien and Fantasy inspired Exibition titled Castles in the Mist. Just got flier today with TS/Mallorn.

Ted Nasmith & Ruth Lacon artwork (as usual with ADC events)
Special invited guests John Howe, Alan Lee and Roger Garland!!!! (All under one roof; all at one event!)

When you think of Tolkien art; not many other people spring to mind...

Thanks to Jason Fisher for finding this and passing it on...

Tolkien Studies volumes 3 and 4 are currently on sale at Amazon.com (which doesn't happen often for journals like this one) so if you need a copy, now is a good time. These list for $60 each.

Having Carol sign/sketch in your copies of LT I and II will certainly set them apart a bit from the rest of the copies, but I don't think it adds significantly to the value of the books. Mostly because Carol hasn't done any other Tolkien illustrations that I know of, she was commissioned by Easton Press specifically for these - so she isn't well known or sought after in the Tolkien collecting circles (yet).

You can check out her website at http://www.carolheyer.com

On a side note, I have been talking with Easton Press and the Guide is fairly heavily updated already - I am working on a summary article to post in the news section with some comments and other interesting tidbits, hopefully this weekend or early next week.
