The thought of this set being issued in the ongoing Deluxe format did cross my mind. Each of the 10 releases so far have been individually slipcased and a unique color (some of the color choices have baffled me and the upcoming B&L looks to be quite similar to The Hobbit). I hope that if these volumes constitute the 12th, 13th, and 14th books in the series, they will follow suit. They could be boxed like the sets gathering the first 4 and 5 books of the series.

Indeed the thought had crossed my mind over the years too. It would be very nice to have these in the new deluxe format.

So any update from HC about what the new HOME set might be?

On a related note, I liked the cut out slipcases of the LOTR and TH deluxe editions, and the three colour foil stamping. They looked very premium. Lately, except for Tales From the Perilous Realm, the rest of the slipcases have seemed pretty lazy to me.

Beren and Luthien looks like it is designed by Alan Lee. It looks nice, but I do wish they used different colours, especially since there seem to be several motifs incorporated in the design (lady, nightingale, star).

Sorry, heard nothing back. Agree with your points regard the cutouts and coloured foil.

Stu, I googled the ISBN and found this: http://www.harpercollins.com.au/97800 ... -deluxe-boxed-set-edition

An excerpt of the description:
This very special collector's edition brings together all twelve books into three hardback volumes – over 5,000 pages of fascinating Tolkien material – and places them in one matching box.
