Ah ok, we'll have to wait and see then. Good chance it'll be a Day book, but that's speculation.

Speaking of speculation, this year "The Silmarillion" turns 40. Anyone think there'll be a new edition?



Probably. Any excuse, these days...

Maybe because people tend to think of paperbacks as being monochrome, so they are driving home that it is in colour? Just a guess, but can't see it being anything more than that.

They come up on eBay now and then. There have been the odd set sell for silly money, but I would recommend you don't pay more than the original RRP (a couple have sold recently for substantially below 100 pounds IIRC). Worth mentioning there are two essentially identical prints.

I have this set, and it is absolute crap. Nice design, horrible implementation.

Hello everyone,
I am resuming this old thread since I'd like to have your opinion on the authenticity of the bookplate attached below.
The bookplate looks genuine to me, but I thought that several expert eyes could spot possible faults



Hard to tell -- I think all of these bookplates look fake, even the ones hat probably aren't.

Yeah, I saw that -- and my eyebrows lifted at the price!

I've never really wanted those books myself; Always thought they were a bit ugly and 1970s looking.
