I was able to make a deal with the same seller you bought from to buy his remaining Princess Hobbit art. He had 8 illustrations total and I felt like I got a great deal. I have not got them yet, but when I do I will post some photos. Maybe Marquette University will want them (they should if I am giving them out) lol. We will see. If I think they will take care of them, then that is were they should go. Of course, whichever one is my favorite might end up on my wall for a year or so before I start giving away stuff I just bought.

Just had to point this one out. I was unaware that such an edition was produced with "a black cloth like material laced with gold." Looks like someone wrapped em up in an old pair of Levis. At least the "books are in very good condition for their age!" Whatever the case, they make me cringe!

Thanks!

Aw, c'mon - I only got the year wrong.

Actually, Ted wasn't there; but I got one or two items signed by Alan Lee and John Howe (they'd each contributed to these items) - and then got Ted to sign 'em too, the following month!

And, oh yes! My copy of the 2004 Silm is signed - but only by Ted, I'm afraid!

Love your posts garm! Sounds like it was a great event; you couldn't even remember attending! *chuckle* --but, hold on, Alan & Ted might have been there too! Well, if I'd been to half as many Tolkien events as you, I'd probably forget who all had been there too. Anyway, I look forward to looking into TCG tomorrow; "Hold on!, I actually have one of these signed Silmarillions in my collection now that I think about it..." hehe...

Oh, sorry - ought to have checked before I posted. This Festival took place on 28-30th August 2004. Alan Lee and John Howe were there, as I recall. As fr Royd Tolkien - he may have been there on a different day to the one I was there.

Sorry about the mix-up.
