You've caught me out (I think a lot of people don't know today that _ means _italics_), missed one the first time round, so had to edit it twice.

I have just had a quick look at my copy of Pictures and Artist and Illustrator. I think both books are excellent, Pictures because it has some bigger pictures than Artist and Illustrator, but Artist and Illustrator is a much more comprehensive book than Pictures.

Did this book include everything unique by JRRT (be it pieces of art or writings) that were already contained in Pictures of J.R.R. Tolkien?


No is the answer, as there are some illustrations in Pictures that are not in Artist and Illustrator but all the main ones are and I'm sure that Wayne and Christina can give you a much more detailed answer to your questions.

I got my replacement version of the Index from HarperCollins, the typos have been fixed and this copy was bound correctly. I think it is a really nice book now and goes very well with the other 12 hardback volumes.

It also omits the credit line 'Compiled by Helen Armstrong' which appears above the ISBN in the original printing. (Unless this has been moved elsewhere in the print-on-demand copies.) Wayne and Christina


It has been moved to the Title Page.

It would be interesting to see a picture of the Index page with the typo, if someone could post one.


Very remiss not to provide any pictures, here are one of the dust jacket, one showing my unusual binding and one showing the typos. There are two typos, HarperCollins and the date (2010) appear in a very strange font, and they also forgot to include the full ISBN, just left the end blank.
