I am very excited for the book. Hopefully will get an English copy as my French is woeful these days.

Posted on the Tolkien Collector FB group, but here are the pictures of the private viewing "Aubusson weaves Tolkien" Exhibition, where I had the chance and privilege to meet again with the Tolkien Family, as well as Catherine McIlwaine and Professor Ferré.
A memory I will cherish forever.

Below the pictures of the event.

And a first look at the catalogue (signed by Baillie, Emmanuel Gerard director of the City of the Tapestry, Alice Bernadac, curator of the exhibition ; Catherine Mc Illwaine and Vincent Ferré, who wrote articles in the catalog.)

Inside, a preface by Baillie Tolkien, an introduction by Emmanuel Gerard, and some articles by C. McIllwaine, Vincent Ferré, Alice Bernadac and others.
The second part is dedicated to the tapestries : each one has a double page with the cartoon facing the final artwork, plus another 2 pages about details and original painting by Tolkien.
