I have tried to find mention of this particular title and have not found anything; I hope you'll accept my apologies that it has been out for a few weeks now already - I just stumbled over it.

They offered to send me a review copy (that I am still waiting on) so I hadn't gotten around to writing anything up on it yet - anyone who has a copy, please chime in with your thoughts!

Well, the review copy showed up just now. So I will post a review maybe this weekend!

In the meantime, it is a 128 page oversized softcover (11" x 8.5", landscape format) with lots of pictures, sidebars and extras like projects and recipes interspersed. I noticed a few things I would have phrased differently in a very quick scan, but it seems like a fun book that should be interesting to read through more closely. It thanks John Garth and Wayne Hammond in the acknowledgements for various assistance provided - a good indicator that the author had good intentions and was asking the right people, at least. Many (very many) of the photos are credited to Wikimedia Commons and Flickr, but the significant ones that I noted in my quick scan (photos from Tolkien's school years, etc.) were credited and reproduced with explicit permission.

HarperCollins UK are running a 30% off code over the weekend.

Should work on the following

Please note: we only ship physical products to the UK, the Channel Islands and Ireland

Hmm for me in Australia ordering from Amazon works out slightly cheaper despite HC’s 30% discount.

It probably didn’t really matter though since it seems that HC only delivers to the UK?

Also, for UK buyers, the 30% BH code will take the NoME standard edition below the threshold for free postage...

And not stocking your own deluxe editions is just baffling.

Gotta do something to drive home the "deluxe"!

Will someone buy the upcoming Pictures (release date: Nov 11)? I'm curious where were they printed.
