The individual books are for sale in New Zealand, but not the boxed set. Quality looked pretty average for HarperCollins (i.e. about as cheap as they can get away with). Glued bindings, etc. The Hobbit that came out last year was a pretty cheap effort, and the LoTR volumes looked to be about the same. I didn't pay that close attention, though as I wasn't buying. The design of the covers and the colours are nice.

That was in Auckland (just drove the 1,600 km from Auckland to Queenstown in two days, with a 2AM ferry journey in the middle -- way too much driving for my ageing body!). I'll have a look in the bookstore in QT tomorrow and can take some photos if they have the books in stock.

Wow Stu looking good
I especially like the orange limited edition version although i wouldnt recommend tape - you will find it will damage the surface once removed - lol



Ironically, box 19 - the orange one - mostly contains low value stuff!

Here is a picture of my collection, looking fantastic, on account of appearing to have arrived in one piece...

As the removalists still have about 15% of my stuff (and I will get it at some random point in the future), I was relieved that all of the books came through in the first batch.

Of all the little Tolkien sayings that have become popular because of the movies, the one I hate the most is "Not all those who wander are lost".

It had specific relevance in the book, but now it appears on all kinds of crap as if it is some piece of important philosophy.

Which it isn't - It is just a glib statement when you stick it on a pendant or a T-shirt.
