Has anyone gotten custom slipcases from from tolkienbookshelf.com ? Any opinions? I mean as a standalone purchase (the book + slipcase offerings seem over-expensive). Or has anyone gotten custom slipcases from any other source?

His leather slipcases are of excellent quality; similar in design but far superior in terms of execution to slipcases used by HarperCollins.

Worth pointing out that they aren't "collectable", so they don't add financial value to an ordinarily slipcased book that is missing the original slipcase. They are kind of like facsimile dust jackets in that regard. I'd still consider buying the odd one, but I do recognise a sales tool when I see one (and they seem to be used to justify some pretty out there prices on fairly ordinary books, IMHO).

I agree with Stu in that they don't add intrinsic value. But, having had/seen the occasional one in the past (and connecting to another recent thread), having a full case for a book can protect it immeasurably, preserving fragile dyes in the dustjacket from UV light for example. That way the book is still on your shelf and not in a storage box out of the way, but it is still completely protected.
