I'm very curious what the motif will be for the slipcase for the deluxe edition [uk publishers only.]


Yeah me too. IMO the best motifs have been for LOTR, The Hobbit and Talea From the Perilous Realm. The first two have a nice cut out on the slipcase through which the inner motif can be seen, while the third was just a beautiful amalgamation of individual motifs representing the individual "tales". Besides the fact they have beautiful colours and texture, and aren't just plain ol' gold stamping.

I feel like the rest are rather lazy in design and execution.

Ah now I get what you're saying. I have been holding off purchasing the HOME Collector's Edition set for a while, but I might just bite the bullet one of these months. I have the first 6 books that I purchased individually, and I've been taking my time to go through them, which is why I haven't been too compelled to get the Collector's Set until now.

If it was not India paper, it would basically just be the standard 3 volume with slightly different paper covering the boards, and presumably costing more money.


But isn't that what all the current deluxe editions are anyway? Just different presentation and no new/special/exclusive content? I don't think any of the new deluxe editions add anything extra compared to other paperback and hardcover editions, e.g., Silmarillion, Hobbit, COH. Probably LOTR has those two Book Of Marzabul scans, but that hardly qualifies as special content imo.

That said, I do agree with you about the China printings. I sincerely hope the Beren and Luthien deluxe edition will not be crappy quality.

There are several online places where you can get the first edition (with the tri-coloured foil) for about USD 300, and it goes much higher from there, depending on how greedy the seller is :)

Wouldn't it be nice if HC did a release of the three HOME books in the style of the new deluxe editions with the colour slip cases? Oh, and the beautiful gold foil motifs on the front board and cover. How lovely would that be!

I wonder if this can be suggested to HC :)
