I agree with Deagol. It seems strange that Harper Collins would already have the current set of deluxe editions in print, and then decide not to follow it up with a Silmarillion to match. I do, however, love all of the quarter leather books they have released, so I am sure it will be nice. Hopefully, it will be a truly limited edition (1000 or less), instead of the 10,000+ that they have been cranking out on the other deluxe editions. I would also love to see it as an illustrated deluxe. I really enjoyed CoH with Alan Lee's works.
Whatever the case, it is still very early. I suppose that there is a chance that it could end up matching the other current deluxe books. The price of 60 GBP certainly matches, while other recent quarter leather editions have been listed at 100 GBP. Any thoughts Beren?
