Wonderful, Trotter, this is extremely useful!

I'll wait until the first actual photos of the book come out... the olive-green gilded pages look terrible for me.

More photos dropped. Looks like in addition to the Christopher/Riddett map there is a copy of JRRT’s own map.

I think this looks really good, even the 'green' colour

I still don't care for the letters on the pages but the green (while baby poop looking) does suit the book.

I think the outside of the book makes it look rather majestic and of holding real weight and importance. I really like it.

Looks like some shops in the UK are beginning to put the trade volume out for sale. Someone on a FB Tolkien group is posting pictures of theirs.

Reproducing the facebook images from the lucky shopper (with their permission). I'm leaving off the reproductions of the interior art but including the list of illustrations pages.

Before they did a cone orange, now they do a cone green.

Are those 59 illustrations from the normal version or the deluxe version?

This is the trade(normal) edition, however the Deluxe will also have the same illustrations.
