Found a couple of new reference pics taken from the Official 2019 Diary... and probably the most detailed I've seen so far. The more I see, the more I like.

The diary pics made me go back and look at the pics of the actual box.  It's got very much a Hudolin 1996 box vibe to it--squarish panels, light on dark phone door sign, big clunky lamp...

Worth noting that the 'back' image on the Diary is just a photoshop of the front image, to remove the handles, locks, and Phone Panel door!

Yup. And they've cloned the middle left panel into where the PTO sign should be.

Curious, the windows don't have the crossbar detail on them in the diary photos... And we know they're present on the prop we've seen out and about.

To my eye it looks more like the middle left and St. John's panel match. Perhaps to make it less obvious that they match-up one on top of the other they used the St. John's panel to cover the PTO sign and the middle left to replace that.

Based on the grain in the wood, I think I've identified at least 3 x props, so far ... there's bound to be a few subtle differences between them.

They've mirror-flipped the front image for the back (except for the top sign), and then badly blurred out the lock and handle

I noticed that as well. When willbrooks1989 mentioned the back was a photoshop of the front, I looked closer at it to see if I could spot the wood grain pattern, and that's when I noticed the wood grain that was on the left on the front cover, was now on the right on the back cover. The same for the right-front, left-back. (I was going to ask about that to make sure it wasn't just my stanky old wizzard eyes playing tricks on me again, but I see you posted it first. Thanks for setting my mind as ease, Angelus! ;D)

Now... if this is the 2019 diary, I would love to see them start working back to the 1963 diary! And of course, continue with a new diary after every new series. That would be the way to do something like this. Rather than mixing and matching "Visual Dictionaries" or "<Name the Monster> Handbooks", just publish a new diary that encompasses everything we see during the recent series. (So Series 12 would have its own Official 2020 Diary. Wow... 2020 that close already? How time flies!)
