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.

My Deluxe Kullervo has just been delivered, looks nice, though some people may be unhappy as it is printed and bound in China. It also states that this printing is available for a limited time only, so at the moment I expect HarperCollins do not expect to reprint.

The number-line mess-up that Khamul mentioned. I was actually pleased with this cock-up as it clearly denotes the first print (as the first lot were printed as a batch, and were defective).


It is not the number-line that is incorrect. The Index does not appear to have a number-line.

The text is meant to be
