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

Yes, it is strange that the black quarter-bound books do not match. Even within the History of Middle Earth set they do not match in height. Personally, I have a third print of LotR, second print of The Hobbit, and first of the Silmarillion, so at least the slipcases match in their faux leather covering.

I love leather bound books, but the Harper Collins books do have the tendency to fray at the pont where the leather meets cloth. I would love to see some full leather editions made again, similar to the super deluxe ones from the 1980's. That said, I again agree with Deagol that the new deluxe editions 'work' better together. I do have the one small gripe about there being no circular window in the CoH slipcase, but that is minor.
