I only have one Cor Blok signature to compare this with, which is in the signed slipcase of Tolkien Tapestry, they do not look that similar but I can't add more than that. You need to have looked at lots of signatures to even stand a chance of being able to detect fake items.

Additionally, you are right in that I can think of no gain to be had from forging Cor Blok's signature.

I forget, are we expecting a Deluxe Secret Vice and/or Lay of Aotrou and Itroun before Beren and Luthien or are those yet to be announced?


I expect both will come out next year, but probably after Beren and Luthien as the Deluxe for that is in May of next year.

Interesting looking at some news stories on the web, some seem to have an issue with "Lúthien"

In some cases it turns into the text below.

Hopefully, they will do similar events to the Children of Hurin that was done for release of that book.

Someone was mentioning the letters at the bottom of the pages, for the signatures. I understood the concept of signatures but I didn't know about them being lettered in old books, so that was cool to learn. There's no "A" which is understandable, but... they skipped J, going from I on page 129 to K on page 145?


The signature numbers are interesting as they show how the book was originally printed. The sheets would be folded and cut so that they formed something that resembles a booklet of pages and then these are placed together in the correct order and glued or sewn onto the binding (16 pages in total). The signature numbers are a checkmark for the binders to make sure that they are in the correct order, as some pages did not have page numbers on them.

I and J are to similar so only one was used.
