Interesting to hear you're making a facsimile, Stu, I'm eager to see the result!

I actually did all the work a while back and got stymied in terms of A3 paper that was off-white, so I put it on the backburner. I'm just going to go ahead and accept that the paper will be a bit bright and get it printed. The A3 card I have for the cover looks like a good match, based on the video.

I can see that "*Feower: twa" on SYX MYNET needs to be a fraction bolder than I currently have it. My original scan of that page was a bit rough, so the bolding wasn't that obvious. Will sort that and get the damn thing printed.

Pictures from an early prototype.

Another item was on this weekend, 2 Tolkien letters from 1956, about 14:30 minutes into the episode.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/ ... 9-16-bbc-caversham-park-1

The 5th November 1956 letter is in Hammond & Scull Chronology (page 496) but the 11th November 1956 is not listed as yet.
