Thanks for the replies. Interesting that Wellinghall's first printing is "right." This would indicate that it was indeed "corrected." The publisher's image (see Amazon or Wayne & Christina's blog) clearly shows the titles both right-facing. It sure makes a lot more sense to me to have the slipcase mimic the book.

I received a 2nd printing of The Art of The LotR and its slipcase is configured backwards, just as my 1st printing is (opposite that of The Art of the Hobbit). I'm unconvinced that the correct version truly exists. Anyone want to prove me wrong with a photo?

Third printing is also backwards relative to the Art of The Hobbit. I figure they are all like that until I see a photo showing otherwise :)

I received my copy of this book today as I purchased it during an Amazon UK sale a few weeks back. In fact my intention was to login here to comment on this as I noticed the same issue when I put it next to The Art of The Hobbit (my copy is identical to onthetrail's).

The problem is that the images on the front and reverse of the slipcase are swapped, aka: printed on the wrong side. Of course... China :)
