"HarperCollins is starting its celebrations for the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit ahead of time, with the publication of a collection of Tolkien's artwork and a 'cute' pocket-sized edition of the novel at the end of this month."

"Braun said he was wondering what he could do that would be a little bit different: "It looks really cute, and hobbits are little, so it's the sort of mad idea you have as a publisher. I think it's going to run away."

Oh, dear..

Translation: HarperCollins uses 75th Anniversary as excuse to shovel the same stuff out in endless different tacky printed-in-China variants. Fortunately we will be getting a facsimilie Hobbit (which I am really looking forward to), so I can ignore the rest of it, I suppose...

My math is pretty good --won't 2013 be a little late?
