Do you have a small defect on the heraldic scheme of the text page, on the Finrod square ?

Do you recommend it, if I have already have the Art of the Hobbit and Art of the LotR? I mean, are there more pictures, not containted in those two books, or is it just a reprint of the already existing ones?

Worth saying that modern digital scanning techniques don’t guarantee more accurate colour reproduction. Colour profiles specific to the printing equipment and paper are used to try and get it right, but colour reproduction is hard.

The level of care that will go into it will depend on how much money you are paying. An expensive reproduction of a painting is prob going to be better than a £25 book where so long as it is crisp and clean that’s good enough.

I received my copy of the US - Houghton Mifflin Harcourt still shown as the publisher - edition of Pictures last night. I'll open it up and compare to the new UK edition later tonight or tomorrow.

Yes please do, mine showed up about an hour ago, but I plan to keep it sealed for now, as I have already unsealed and shelved my UK-HarperCollins Pictures

First video on Youtube that I have seen of the HarperCollins Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien



I think this YouTubers books will end up being described as "much loved" due to his heavy handiness with them.

You aren't wrong - that was painful to watch. I hope he doesn't ever acquire anything rare/important...
