Random Mondays off are also rare & desirable. Some people have jobs.

Too true, Khamûl.

If anyone is planning to attend a signing and is willing to help out more remote people, please chime in! I am not planning to get a signed copy (from Alan), but others might.

Yeah, you would have to be a bit eager to incur any significant cost in time/effort for an Alan Lee signature. No offence to Alan, but he sure does like signing things...

Waterstones are doing the [Edit for clarity: AL] signed edition, as they did for B&L

All of these are just AL though, yes? There's nothing CoH-style likely to happen here is there?

Indeed. I don't imagine there will be any CT signed editions. I don't mind paying an extra fiver for an AL edition (and I've ordered one). Mostly I'm interested to see if Waterstones do what they did with B&L and print their own ISBN sticker with the Tolkien.co.uk branding and affix it to the jacket.

Aye, indeed. That's the sort of absurd minutiae everyone on here can relate to! :D

I’m sooooo glad it’s not another shade of blue.

I hope this is an early sample, that has been rectified, as the book is struggling with fitting in the slipcase, looks like it will burst if pushed in any further.

What a lovely shade of mucus. Can't say I'm thrilled with the color choice (not the first time) if the photo is accurate. Hey, at least the slipcase opening is a smooth curve! (I agree that it looks much too snug.)
