     Yep. The pictures shown on the poster are indeed the ones  
included as ten foldout prints in the deluxe hardcover. The idea  
behind the prints is to show the Good Housekeeping art as it was  
originally painted, before the text verses were added (of course, in  
the main body of the book, the art appears as published, with the  
verses included).

     Sadly, there was no page devoted to THE OLD MILL. This Inducks  
link should take you to a complete list of published GH pages:
     These are all in the book, plus a page based on SKY TROOPER that  
was shelved and never published in the old days. But no OLD MILL.

     In general, all of us at Gemstone are indescribably glad to get  
this book on sale at last. The work on it wore us out, but I think it  
was worth it!
