I just know it will be published but no more info has been released. Once I do know more be sure I will post it here...

I can of course speculate. It will for sure be signed by Alan Lee and it could be signed by Christopher Tolkien also. Why I think so? Well, I was receiving info from inside Harper Collins about this edition and then suddenly I was asked to write back begin January, since they started talking with the Tolkien Estate to finalize the preparation of this signed deluxe edition. The reason for talks probably is the how and when the signing by CT will take place...

According to Beren's interview with David Brawn of HarperCollins there are no immediate plans for a super deluxe edition, but something might appear in time for Christmas...

It is for sure they were planning a super deluxe edition. First I did receive info on this and even received info on ISBN and how it will look like. Then suddenly the project was been rediscussed and put on hold. Reason was new discussion with the Tolkien Estate. Of course this made me think they would proceed from a signed edition by Alan Lee, towards a signed edition with both Alan Lee and Christopher Tolkien.

If they have the project ready and start discussing with the family I thought it would be about time and place to get the signatures of CT. Then one month later they told me to contact them again in January 2007, and said things had changed and that it was unsure there would come a signed edition in April 2007. So there for I contacted David Brawn in January and you saw about 60% of my answers and questions.

Something went wrong, or pre-orders of the normal deluxe edition are not as high as they expect, or something completely different.... I can contact David Brawn again for more answers if you wish. But if i do so i will need a full list of new questions. So people, if you need to ask anything to the Tolkien publishers just say what you need to know!

HiBeren,

Apart from the usual questions regarding the super delue edition (when, how many and what format) I have a few other questions regarding the anniversary of both The Hobbit and The Silmarillion.

Will Christopher Tolkien be attending any events throughout the year??
Your article mentions that he is unable to attend the UK, but will he appear in person elsewhere or via the media?

Will there be any previously unpublished material in the new editions?

One rumour that has been floating around for a long time is follow volumes of Letters by Tolkien and another Artist & Illustrator with new illustrations and letters. Are these being considered?

I'm not sure if these are the sort of questions you would like to pass on, but I'd be interested in the answers.
