I think I'd want something more like this (although I'm sure I could do better with a bit of thought). Just nice and simple and true to the original material.

I agree. As always, I have an idea of what it SHOULD look like :) Maybe I will fire up the drawing package after I have sorted some thorny database queries this afternoon (having to use SQL Server, and I can't say I like it after 20 years of Oracle and PostgreSQL)

Yeah, Pocket size. I had a semi-informed inkling that these would use the 1st Edition jacket styles.

I'd jave preferred a full-size edition with those jackets, but this is one I will pick up, I think (despite my feelings about the pocket format).

Agree that the box is much too fussy. I think something primarily white, rather than primarily black would work a lot better.

Edit: Speedhyhen has the picture of the back of the box also

Interesting article (or so I thought)

Finally got my Deluxe B&L today after my original order apparently got lost in transit and the seller (Speedy Hen) being out of stock for a long while. Has the slipcase height been mentioned here? There's an 1/8 inch gap above the book which is quite a lot more than any other in the series. The first 10 volumes in their slipcases are more or less level as they sit on the shelf, but B&L stands noticeably taller. It's a small thing, sure, and I'm sure glad they went back to L.E.G.O. for this one. I just wish HC would take a bit more pride in its design and consistency. They fix one thing only to mess up another.


The slipcase on my copy is the same height as all the other books (1st prints), which are actually all very uniform. The gap between the top of the book and the slipcase is about the same as LoTR. Some of the others have smaller gaps, or like FoA and Kullervo, no real gap.
