Wadfest BBE 2005

Good morning all, :)

I hope that you are all doing well, despite the particular situation in which we all find ourselves today.

I just learned of the existence of "Big Brown Envelopes Wadfest 2005", which a priori were produced and sold at auction to help Cancer Research (approved by Sir Terry Pratchett and Bernard Pearson).
The originals were produced in 5 copies.
Later, in July 2005, there was a production of display cards (100 copies), with the 4 labels of the original edition to help the Severn Office Hospital.

But I don't find any trace in the catalog, neither for the original BBE, nor for the display card released a little later.
Is it because these are not productions directly made by the "cunning artificer"? (Although this has been approved by the two legendary people mentioned above).

I saw a post here talking about it HERE (by danjim)

Did I search the catalog badly? Or is it normal that it is not mentioned, since it is not a direct production of the Cunning Artificer and that is not exactly an LBE?

Take care of yourself and your loved ones,
"It's still magic even if you know how it's done."

You were right, the BBC is not in the catalogue. Mainly, because they are not a product from the Emporium.
The BBE wasn't associated with any particular stamps although they did contain stamps donate by the members of the Ankh-Morpork Society of Flatalists.
However, the catalogue has expanded a great deal since 2005, and there now is a place for the BBE under Ephemera.

Added

If anyone can supply me with a scanned image of an envelope for the catalogue I would be very grateful. 300dpi would be perfect.
