It is nice to see the standard of Journalism is so good in Wales, look at the cover of the latest issue of the "Cambrian News".

I also noted a comment on another forum from the BBC article on the festival and its viability.

"It plans to feature "internationally respected speakers", and is expected to attract dozens of visitors."

Indeed it is great that all my versions have the same page numbering, UK hardbacks, paperbacks and both sets of the three volume edition, so the current paperback index works with all these editions.

I'd assume that the pagination will be identical to the previous releases.

This will be an expensive set of books and I'd like to know before purchasing if they plan to bring out a box-set as I'd rather buy that than the individual books.

Looks like HarperCollins may be reissuing the whole of HOME in 12 single volume hardbacks, in the same design as the current black paperback set.

I can only find books 1-5 and the index listed so far for the 4th March, but this is the first copy of the Index to be in Hardback. Priced at £40 each, which I assume is to cater for the 30% discount on www.tolkien.co.uk (£28 after discount). Amazon seems to have all 12 and the index listed for the 4th March.

Beren is selling them on his website, 55 thousand Euros for the original book.

Beren posted an interesting article on Cor Blok illustrating the 2011 HarperCollins Calendar on his site.

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... alendar_2011_Cor_Blok.php

I left a comment disagreeing with one of the sentences in the post

"Cor Blok is the only artist ever to have met J.R.R. Tolkien, and the only artist Tolkien admired enough to purchase some of his work."

I think you may doing a disservice here to Pauline Baynes, she certainly met Tolkien and he hugely admired her work, though I am not sure if he ever purchased any, he did ask for a permanent loan of the artwork on the 1963 Deluxe Edition Slipcase.


Does anyone know if Tolkien ever bought, rather than was freely given, Pauline Baynes original artwork?
