I have no connection to the seller, but thought it could be worth mentioning here (hard-to-get publication):

A bi-lingual (Eng/Swe) exhibition book, from the Paul Raymond Gregory (Tolkien artist) exhibition in Sweden, is offered for sale for about £16 + shipping at a Swedish dealer's site.

Paul Raymond Gregory. ur Tolkiens värld : from the world of Tolkien 2007; 79 pp, softbound, ISBN: 9188040895.

I'm not particularly interested in art books myself, but if anyone collects such, I'd be happy to help ordering the book.

Thank you Findegil - it appears like this letter hasn't been noted before.

For the record (I've already announced the book in a comment to the news section):

The Romance of the Middle Ages by Nicholas Perkins and Alison Wiggins (exhibition book from the Bodleian Library)

From King Arthur and the Round Table to Alexander the Great's global conquests and encounters with fire-breathing dragons, the stories of romance appear in some of the most beautiful books of the Middle Ages, and still resonate today. This book provides an engaging, scholarly, and richly illustrated guide to medieval romance and its continuing influence on literature and art. Romance's conjunctions of chivalric violence, love, sex, and piety, and its openness to the miraculous, monstrous or bizarre mark it out as the most fertile narrative form of the Western Middle Ages. This book examines the development of romance as a literary genre, its place in medieval culture, and the scribes and readers who copied, owned, and commented on romance books, from magnificent illuminated manuscripts to personal notebooks and chance survivals. It also explores the complex anatomy of human desire in romance, as portrayed by writers including Dante, Chaucer, and Thomas Malory. Medieval romance was hugely popular after the Middle Ages. Shakespeare, Spenser, and Walter Scott imbibed its motifs, Mark Twain parodied them, and the Pre-Raphaelites based an aesthetic movement around them. The Romance of the Middle Ages traces the influence of the genre to the twentieth century and beyond, encompassing the stories of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and J.K. Rowling, the Jedi knights of Star Wars and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Nicholas Perkins is Fellow and Tutor in English at St Hugh's College and University Lecturer in Medieval English, University of Oxford. Alison Wiggins is Senior Lecturer in English Language at the University of Glasgow.

While awaiting Hammond's new edition of the Descriptive Bibliography, and Deagol's update of TolkienBooks.net, some may perhaps be interested in checking the Index: Writings by J.R.R. Tolkien (mostly referencing already available bibliographies) on the wiki Tolkien Gateway.

It's naturally not very reliable (I'm not intending to start a discussion on the reliability of wikis) or complete, but for what it's worth it may be useful to get an overview of especially newly published material (post-2007).

Indeed, +1 to Khamul! I remember when TolkienBooks was down for a year or so ... it made life very difficult for collectors.
