Greetings, All. I just wanted to drop a quick note here to let people know that for the next couple months leading into the Holidays, everything in my store will be 30% off. Please take a look, and feel free to get in touch with any questions/comments. I've got a few nice Tolkien items on hand right now, as well as some general sci-fi and fantasy titles. I'm really trying to reduce my inventory and slow things down to focus on my family. I love collecting and working with other collectors, but the website requires more attention than I've been able to afford lately.

Thanks,

-Steve

I've got to agree with Stu on this. Personally, I don't find it appealing. However, this design really looks like a conscious push by the publishers to draw young children to the book on the store shelves. It reminds me of many of the other modern children's covers out there. The classic Tolkien drawn Hobbit cover might not be "keeping up with the times" in the children's section at Barnes and Noble anymore. My kids are only 3 (obviously not the target audience), but I guarantee they would grab this one off the shelf before the classic cover.

Looks like a touch of Pauline Baynes influence too, now that I think of it. - Just a touch.

One of the strangest ebay auctions I've seen. I am really baffled at this one. High bids too! I read the entire listing out of pure bewilderment, then, to my horror, looked at the item location - it's the town I grew-up in!

Just curious how people feel about the second set here, with laminated dust wrappers. Preserved, yes, but...... ?
