I didn't realise you guys were discussing MF's comment on TolkienLibrary & posted a comment there, just after Pieter's. You can remove this too Beren, since I didn't say anything of great value; just a kind of: why are you posting this comment here Mark?

Anyway, the museum sounds nice enough. However like garm I have little interest (a bit harsh; perhaps "less interest") in people "new" to collecting --who spend massive, seem to care little about finding out about Tolkien (or Tolkien bibliography), and who in 10 years are probably going to be collecting (or doing) something else. I just don't feel there is any substance there; a genuine underlying interest being shown. Now, people who have fabulous collections that cost peanuts: that's more interesting. Especially (unlike you garm! --who probably assembled much of yours decades ago! --only kidding...) those who have assembled a collection on a shoestring budget today. That takes time, patience, and not a little skill & knowledge.

I did buy one myself last week... did not check yet what number I received! But then I got one with a number "PC" written in it.

Still wondering if this is Proof Copy or Pieter Collier... this was a quality control copy (or so the paper stuck inside it said it was). I had sort of hoped the deluxe edition would feature some more "large" paintings, but except for the signed page it looks the same.

As for the slipcase... I like the result. Much closer to the original with this matte paper. Sort of wished all images would have been reproduced on matte paper, since now they look a darker then the originals. Anyway guess it is difficult to reproduce these paintings... hope one day to be able to make a small exhibition for all of you. Since in real these paintings do look brilliant!

Earlier, you seemed upset () --so it's good to see you're happy!
I may get the Deluxe edition too...
