TCG Letter #392 / Carpenter Letter #147
Allen & Unwin Ltd.
15 June 1954
Tolkien expresses the joy of receiving an advance copy of "The Fellowship of the Ring," praising the book's presentation. They find the jacket much improved and striking, particularly liking the grey paper used. However, the author points out a concern about the jackets for the second and third volumes, noting a need for differentiation since they appear too similar due to the same design being used for all.
