I got the same email as well.

I am hoping that HarperCollins would think about an independent release of the Audio CD of the so far unreleased audio, by Tolkien, from the The Hobbit, as they appear to be facing issues with producing the Facsimile Hobbit.



It would be nice, but I have my doubts as to whether the market would be big enough for them to bother with a separate release.

Nice. There may be some hope in it arriving in one piece, then. Mine got dispatched by Amazon today.

I'd be interested in seeing a photo of the book and slipcase, if you get a chance, Khamul. I'm guessing mine will be at least a couple of weeks away.

I got the book today, I like the book and the new versions of the illustrations, you can see quite a difference when comparing with the original illustrations.

I also like the new fold-out illustration at the front of the book (4th picture below).

Bad points for me are that even though the book was in a box, it was still damaged as you can see from the pictures, so will be sending it back.

The plastic case is infuriating to put the book back into, and is almost certain to get broken if you read this book a lot.
