I was browsing at bookshop recently and came across The Book of Ballads and Sagas by Charles Vess, it is dedicated to Jacqui, Sandy and Maddy. It includes graphic novel style illustrated ballads and sagas, 9 of them will be familiar from Steeleye Span recordings (False Knight, King Henry, Thomas the Rhymer, Tam Lin, Demon Lover, Twa Corbies, Galtee Farmer, Alison Gross, The Great Selchie). Bought it for £21.99 and I am really enjoying it alongside re-listening to the songs.

That sounds very interesting.  Will keep my eyes out for that.

This originally came out in comic form (4 issues?), and has obviously been reissued now as a book.

I have now seen that Martin Carthy is booked to play this and I have heard Peter Knight will be there as well. It follows in a recent tradition of anniversary/special concerts in London featuring past members. Let's hope there are few more that will come along.

I agree, but sadly they also have a history of not publishing these anniversary gigs Sad   The closest we have is one video :
