Elmenel, a fantastic calligrapher, is offering 30% discount for her art prints at https://store.elmenel.com from 17:30 GMT today to 24:00 on Sunday.

I have many of her prints myself, and she produced a fantastic piece for the 2021 Beyond Bree calendar that is shipping now, so my personal recommendation cannot be overstated.

Sigh. *Opens wallet*

Edit: Now that I've had a good look at the site, I'm curious as to why there's a Parma Eldaliéva Special I and a Parma Eldaliéva I, 2020 ed.? Only difference seems to be the special is printed in color, unless I'm mistaken? Why the £100 difference for a book printed in color? And, if you're in the market for this kind of thing, why would you ever buy the black and white version?

More importantly, is there any news as to whether the color version will be coming back in stock in the future?

These are two different books: Parma Eldaliéva I, 2020 ed. is a huge volume first released in 2016 - 2017 with the title "The Art of Elmenel: Tengwarin". It represents a Tengwar calligraphic art 'version' of "The Hobbit" and is printed in black and white.
Parma Eldaliéva Special I is a calligraphic Tengwar art transformation of the Akallabêth, of a description of the Island of Númenor, and of the Line of Elros. This book is much smaller but printed entirely in colour.
