Right - the slipcase opening is an actual curve and the spine titling is centered! Did anyone end up with a Kullervo with centered spine titling? The half-dozen I've personally examined all have left-of-centeritis.

I remember thinking (perhaps naively) when I first got my Children of Hurin and Legend on Sigurd and Gudrun SDEs some years back, that the endpapers were hand marbled. I was glancing at them the other day and realized this is not the case. The front and rear papers in CoH are clearly identical. This is not the case in SG, and while I can't find any repeating pattern, my guess is that they wised up enough to make facsimiles from 2 sheets rather than 1. Hand-marbled papers are not that expensive. Given the original cost of these (which I did not pay), it would have been an appropriate touch. Can't say I'm surprised though, given the many cost cutting measures we've seen from HC over the years.

The thought of this set being issued in the ongoing Deluxe format did cross my mind. Each of the 10 releases so far have been individually slipcased and a unique color (some of the color choices have baffled me and the upcoming B&L looks to be quite similar to The Hobbit). I hope that if these volumes constitute the 12th, 13th, and 14th books in the series, they will follow suit. They could be boxed like the sets gathering the first 4 and 5 books of the series.

Hmm...looks like just another reprint of the 3-hardback box currently listed as "out of stock" on tolkien.co.uk. Description is identical. Price sure increased though...

"The publishing division of Oxford University’s Bodleian Library is to release a title featuring illustrations, letters and other material from J R R Tolkien’s archives that have never before been seen by the public, to coincide with a major exhibition on The Lord of the Rings author in 2018.

Tolkien: The Maker of Middle-Earth, written by the Bodleian’s Tolkien archivist Catherine McIlwaine, promises to take readers “far beyond what they know” about the author. New material to be showcased includes draft manuscripts of The Hobbit, Middle-Earth illustrations and paintings by Tolkien, and “letters from admirers including W H Auden, Joni Mitchell and Iris Murdoch”.

Samuel Fanous, the Bodleian’s head of publishing, said the aim was to create a book that accompanies an “unprecedented” exhibition, but also “to make something that will stand on its own”. The Bodleian will be selling the title in all English-language territories, while HarperCollins, Tolkien’s long-time publisher, has translation rights.

Tolkien, who was an Oxford professor for 35 years, left the bulk of his archives to the Bodleian. Additional material in the book is from Marquette University in Wisconsin. The exhibition on the author will open at the Bodleian in June 2018
