But let's see... I'm also curious what the motif will be, and if there will be any "extras" to fill out the book, because, as I've learned on here, it is actually pretty thin, even thinner than The Fall of Arthur. I wonder if "Kullervo" would even fit on the spine.


I have no idea how HarperCollins will fit "The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun" onto a very, very thin spine when it appears as a deluxe edition.

I don't think "Kullervo" will have any any "extras" but will be exactly the same text as the trade edition.

I am sure that "Kullervo" will fit on the spine if you use a very small font size

"A celebration of maps in fiction

Some of our most cherished reading journeys are accompanied by maps. Whether discovering The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, the Narnia books, Swallows and Amazons, or Watership Down, the maps in the end papers are central to our early experience of literature, and are often delightful works of art. In this celebration of the genre, writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley explores some of the classic maps of fictional landscapes and publisher David Brawn looks at the worlds created by Tolkien and C S Lewis. We are also joined by cartographer and artist Jonathan Roberts, creator of the superb official maps of Westeros and Essos, from George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

There will be a book signing after the event.
"

Thursday 10th November 2016, 19:00 - 20:30 - British Library, 96 Euston Road, London
