Re: The Silmarillion 30th Anniversary de luxe edition by J. R. R. Tolkien

The main problem I have with the black quarter leather editions that HC put out was that nothing matched - they were all different heights, the spine lettering varied and they even changed the covering on the slipcase for the last one. They don't easily slide in and out of the slipcases either, and the cloth has a tendancy to fray.
Even though the more recent deluxe editions use cheaper binding materials, I think that they 'work' better and look much more presentable.
