Ah yes, they made that change too. The design is still too ugly/lazy for my liking. I've been holding off buying the current HOME hardcover set for a while, and especially these last few months knowing that the new set was coming; but if this is what the new set will eventually look like, I think I'll just get the current set as it's so much cheaper and also looks better.



I think the difference is about £30 on speedyhen at the moment (99 vs 130 or so). I've really already decided to pass on this one. More interested in seeing what the Pocket LOTR looks like. I'm hoping it will be using something akin to 1st Edition jackets, in which case, I'll likely pick it up for novelty factor.

Regarding the new Complete HOME deluxe box set, it looks like some sites have slightly tweaked the book cover image. The JRRT sigil which was previously shown at top-centre is now perfectly centered. Just something I noticed today.



And they have dropped the circle around it. The spines still look terrible, but at least they are moving in the right direction, I guess. I suspect I'm not the target market.

I assume this will be what The Hobbit Facsimile was around 5 years ago. There was a description on Amazon at some point that talked about a gift edition.

They have little else to keep the money rolling in by now after all. We will see lots more stuff we already have.


Yes, I wondered if it was the original never-eventuated boxed set resurrected or just an error on Amazon. Seems like demand for a Hobbit facsimile would already be sated now.

Yes, but by my wife, who is not impartial.
