Good Man!

I agree that they look nice - I just have to pretend that I haven't seen the words "Film Tie In" anywhere as I very specifically don't collect any of the books with movie covers (as they have all previously looked horrible).

With these new ones, I'd definitely like them with the DJ if they do produce any.

I have had a response from HarperCollins.

The Book People asked for permission to print The Hobbit with a Dust Jacket, which was given. If they sell the Lord of the Rings books then these will also be allowed to have Dust Jackets, but they have not taken up these books for the autumn range.

I was also told that the book colours have changed from the pictures on tolkien.co.uk

The Fellowship of the Ring is green, The Two Towers is burgundy and the Return of the King is the same blue. This is make sure the books in the series have different colours.

Another two new books, the first of which I have asked HarperCollins on a few occasions to print (I doubt if that had any impact on it actually being printed )

I'd like to see the cover for the pocket Farmer Giles of Ham, as I am very impressed with the cover for the pocket edition of Roverandom which is out shortly.

Ahh, great news re the Unfinished Tales. I'd been hoping for that one!
