With RosieLass' permission I've added [In reply to] Can't Post

her photos to my album. I didn't add the photos she took of the side panels, since Uncle Baggins took shots of all those too. But the fox is there, and Tol Admin, etc.

We're working on getting the video to a form where we can share it. We got it from tape to DVD tonight. Now I need my daughter's help to make clips I can put in the album, or someplace. I'm not sure how soon we can do that: I'm in the throes of grading stacks of tests, and Wednesday we plan to have a micro-moot with Morwen, who is vacationing in the area. And Thursday night Terry Pratchett is at the Tattered Cover. Time does fly. But sometime we'll get it out. We had so much fun hearing Altaira sqeeing again.

Seriously, I would just love to convey our thanks to him personally. I hope Entmaiden or someone has at least sent him the photo of Altaira's mouth hanging open in amazement. Priceless!!

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!"

Daniel has viewed the album [In reply to] Can't Post

and loved all the pictures. He sent a congratulations! e-mail that I forwarded to Altaira with his permission. He says "Well Done!" to all us conspirators.

But don't let that stop you from contacting him by e-mail about your travel plans. I'm sure he'd love to meet you as one of his co-conspirators.

One part of the Map... [In reply to] Can't Post

...I'd like to see closer-up is the lower-right side: Gondor & Mordor, etc. I can't find the Reading Room on those other close-up shots. Do you by chance have that portion of the map in a form easy to post/ And the chance to post it? I don't want you to go to a lot of trouble, and no rush.

You and the rest of our reps have done such a stupendous job. {{{geat big hugs!}}} and Mahalo Nui Loa from the bottom of my heart!

Oh, you beat me to it. [In reply to] Can't Post

I looked on RosieLass' page and I think I got all of her photos that weren't duplicates of the ones Uncle Baggins took. Neither one of them seemed to get a closup of Mordor. Guess we'll just have to wait until the prints come out.

Yep, the link will work even if the album is protected, you just need the password to access the whole album.

I saw that one... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and I already downloaded it. I am sorry, I really intended to be more specific. I meant on the map itself.

I saw that on the Draft #2 image, the Reading Room is placed in Gondor...but that whole section of Gondor and Mordor of the actual map part it was not posted in the PhotoBicket folder. So, All I can see is a small fuzy version of the draft. I downloaded that, too...opened it n PhotoShop and magnified it. But it too low-res, naturally, to see any of the detail of that portion of the map at all clearly...it is all too fuzzy; making all the words illegible. I would love to read what all those different places are in Mordor...and even more, I would love to see what the finished versaion of that portion of the map actually looks like in a close-up.

Well, it's out of our hands now, [In reply to] Can't Post

so unless you can convince Altaira to post a photo that's all we've got. The Reading Room was at Minas Tirith, in the library there. You might check out the rough draft in my album: you can enlarge it a bit. But some of the things were moved after that draft.

I was afraid of that [In reply to] Can't Post

It never hurts to check, though.

I did download the draft and opened Photoshop where I have great control 0ver zoom factor. However, the resolution is so low (by necessity to suit the needs of the internet) that making it larger makes the text fuzzy. But that is how I found out RR was in Minas Tirith. But, everything else is much smaller and therefore too fuzzy to read. And, the draft hardly does justice to the final art piece in quality and appearance and that wonderful feel of that fine work.

Alas, I will just have to wait.

Mahalo Nui Loa so much for everything. Though you claim your part was small, and though it may be in the large scheme of things, your part is not small to me. Nor is anyone else's part. What a wonderful collaborative effort this has been.
