The folding wallet accompanying the stamps includes Tolkien's illustrations of The Hill and Lothlórien, the edge of a manuscript page for LotR and part of a slip written by Tolkien during his time at the OED giving his definition for 'Walrus'.
In addition to this set, at least sixteen First Day Covers were issued using the stamps. A guide to these may appear in the Articles section at a later date.
