Additionally David is very kind and helpful. A set of his HoMe cases I ordered were not an exact fit (one case was rotated and the measurements got switched). He generously made me another set even though I said I was happy to make do with the first set. That's above and beyond in my opinion. I agree that his cases are excellent protection for books that lack it.

They're fantastic. So is DM; really helpful guy. Also, they do add value. Come on!, they look great...

Sorry, I really have to disagree. I don't believe they add *financial* value (I chose my wording very specifically). Most embellishments don't. I'm not saying they aren't nice (although I don't personally like the style of slipcase in your image), but a set of common books doesn't suddenly become valuable because you stick them in a nice slipcase (and I'm not arguing that David M. doesn't produce some very nice slipcases -- he does).

I don't agree. At the very least it adds value to the value of the slipcase itself. They're not worth nothing. Take a book worth, say, £80-90 (not your example, a "common" book; that's a straw man argument, as you're always going to struggle to add value to ten-a-penny books); add a slipcase & it's going to sell for £100. 'Tis fact! Stu, it happens on eBay, so it must be true...

Might as well add my 2 cent opinion (and stir the pot).

Have to agree with Khamul. The Slipcase itself has to have some sort of value (at least to the cost of the slipcase itself).

And it does serve to protect the value of the book itself over time.

And pretties the book up a bit so we can admire it on the bookshelf.
