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)


I feel like we have similar design sensiblities :)

Looks all jazzy and mismatched :-/

Ah yes, they made that change too. The design is still too ugly/lazy for my liking. I've been holding off buying the current HOME hardcover set for a while, and especially these last few months knowing that the new set was coming; but if this is what the new set will eventually look like, I think I'll just get the current set as it's so much cheaper and also looks better.

Regarding the new Complete HOME deluxe box set, it looks like some sites have slightly tweaked the book cover image. The JRRT sigil which was previously shown at top-centre is now perfectly centered. Just something I noticed today.

I'm not surprised that B&L is on to its second printing. The book seemed to have been sold out at most (online) retailers in the very first week.
