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.

The website is meant to be launched properly next week, I believe on Tuesday the 18th, which is why no emails have been sent yet.

However, looking at the website as it currently stands, I am very disappointed as it certainly does not have all the currently available HC Tolkien offerings on it.

Where are this years calendar and diary, what about the new paperback Silmarillion, etc. ?

I am not sure what HC are trying to achieve with this site, Amazon has a much better selection and in nearly all cases are cheaper than this web site, so the only items I would buy are 'exclusive' items and they had them on the old site.
