I don't disagree. I don't bother with paperbacks and I only bother with hardbacks if they take my fancy. At this stage, I'd view completism as throwing money in the bin (and I work too hard for it to do that!)...


As an aspiring completist, I completely agree.

We're two days out from the release of the new Deluxe HoME set. Has anybody seen actual images of it? I admit I had sent the publishers a message informing them about my feelings on the design etc. I doubt it would have made any difference. I'm just curious to see what the final product looks like since several sites have varying images.

Haven't seen any significantly revised design. Also haven't ordered it, given the poor pre-publication designs. I guess we will know in a few days.

I am waiting for my preorder. If it will be of any help to anyone I can post pictures as soon as it arrives.

I think that would definitely be useful for those sitting on the fence on this one.

Agree with Stu. Pics will definitely help me make my final decision as I doubt I'll ever see this set in an actual store.

Definitely! This fence isn't that comfortable...

No problem . I will post the pictures as soon as I get the books. I am going on a trip in 4 days, if they don't arrive before that time I will post the pictures as soon as I come back.:)

This is now open to people in the UK.

With less than 3 weeks to go until the historic publication of Beren and Lúthien, we are delighted to announce both an exclusive competition to win a rare, signed print by Alan Lee, and details of his UK tour in June.

More details here

Details on Alan Lee's UK tour and two additional dates, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Was the winner ever announced? I feel like Tolkien.co.uk always has competitions but rarely announces the winners.

Has anyone received this yet? I've got an e-mail from Amazon saying they're 'still trying to obtain the item', and I see it's showing as out of stock at Speedyhen and Waterstones. My initial thought was that HC had underestimated demand, and I was going to end up with a 2nd impression, but I'm now wondering if there's some sort of delay with supplying any copies.
