Village D-Tails Update Packet Intro and Instructions:

First and foremost, our many thanks for your support of the Village D-Tails books, and for your purchase of these update pages. We are proud to bring you the most comprehensive Guide to Department 56 Villages ever produced, and very proud it is now updated to include 2017 and 2018 information and pieces. Enjoy, send your comments, and best of all, your photos!

Enclosed you will find the 2017 - 2018 update to the 4th Edition 2 volume set of Village D-Tails. In it you will discover the addition of all retirements for 2017, as well as all of the new introductions for 2017 and 2018. Newly announced Villages such as The Addams Family, The Nightmare before Christmas, Margaritaville and Harry Potter have been added, along with the latest Department 56 Dealer Commissioned Exclusives and much, much more. The new Silver Series for Dicken's Village and North Pole join the new Art & Architecture classification in this update as well. You will notice some pages that will correct omissions and/or errors from the initial printing... Yes, there were a few! We have re-constructed a couple of sections and the Table of Contents to be what we hope you find to be more user friendly.

The pages in this update are packaged in the order of their replacement in the 2 volume set of Binders you have. They begin with the first tab - 4th Edition, and then continue on through both volumes, in order and accordingly. Each section remains color coded, and has its own unique pagination, referenced in the lower left and right corners of each page. The order of pagination correlates to the new Table of Contents that is also included in this update packet.

You will notice that the Gold Standard Villages have a new page numbering system. Buildings continue throughout consecutively while the accessories for each have been re-styled. You will also find that some sections have been re-worked, and are replaced altogether, such as Classic & Licensed Brands and Commissioned & Licensed Exclusives. Again, this is designed to make your user experience more efficient and enjoyable. The Alpha and Numeric Indexes for both Volume 1 and Volume 2 have also been replaced, due to the additions of the new 2017 & 2018 introductions, and for the same reasons. With regard to the Alpha Index, when a title begins with the article "The", the title will default to the second word in the name. For example, "The First Snow" is listed as "First Snow, The."

We hope you enjoy these updated pages and will continue to find our guides handy in referencing the many exciting Department 56 Village pieces, accessories and ancillary items! -- The Village D-Tails Team
