HM only did CoH & S&G. Even the S&Gs were remaindered. I got a sealed copy for $5 or so (can't remember the exact price).

The Houghton Mifflin Deluxe CoH, printed by LEGO is essentially identical to the HC CoH Deluxe, but has the other orientation of spine text. It doesn't look particularly good, so I also hope they do not take this path. Interestingly the HM Deluxe S&G has the same text orientation as the HC version, and only differs by virtue of having slightly lighter paper (and consequently being a tiny bit thinner).

Good stuff - I still had an email alert for it from before getting my own copy.

I'd say very thick paper seems like the most likely option, but will still be very thin.
