Amazon has uploaded some images of the actual book, so I thought now would be a good time to take it into its own thread. Looks beautiful.

It really does, I preordered the slipcased edition but I should get one of these too.

I ordered my copy of the slipcased edition today.

Do you know if sales of signed copies are foreseen?

Was talking about that with Goldsboro books but unfortunately they couldn't make Ted Nasmith going to London to sign copies because of the pandemic (he lives in Canada...)

Yeah, I imagine if there are any signed copies at any point, it would be via a Canadian (probably Toronto) bookseller.

Amazon has uploaded many other pictures, for the standard as well as for the deluxe edition :

The deluxe edition does have an orange tissue cloth that seems to be a bit lighter than the tone used for the mock-up (but it might be due to the light used for the picture...)
The ship reaching Valinor is the folded poster offered with this edition

Can't wait !

I have always liked that painting Wrath of Fingolfin for some reason.
Looks like the piece with the bright orange sky is the only new painting of Ted's shown thus far.

As far as I have heard, there are no planned signing events (though this could change at any time of course).

I am checking nearly daily for any price changes, especially the deluxe. UF dropped like crazy upon release from the one hundred pound MSRP to fifty pounds at most stores. Sil seems to be holding at 75 quid so far.
