Thanks for the replies. Interesting that Wellinghall's first printing is "right." This would indicate that it was indeed "corrected." The publisher's image (see Amazon or Wayne & Christina's blog) clearly shows the titles both right-facing. It sure makes a lot more sense to me to have the slipcase mimic the book.

I don't think there is a hard and fast convention, but single-book slipcases from publishers I have books from have the "front-facing" information on the right of the slipcase, assuming the opening is facing towards you. Multi-book slipcases (for paperback sets, etc) seem to be a bit more random, but also more often than not follow this convention.

In this case, I'd guess a minor communications cock up between publisher and printer. Obligatory moan about everything being done in China to the detriment of our own economy, etc, etc...

My copy is the same as Karl's.

Was not aware of any convention for slipcases until now, though I do have at least one other item that is oriented the same way as The Art of Lord of The Rings

Congratulations to Wayne and Christina for winning the Best Book of 2015
from the Tolkien Society, for this fantastic book
