It appears that they are on sale in Waterstones in the UK.

Just off to the store to collect my copy.

We might have a cardboard box to protect the deluxe edition, as this recent reprint of the LotR Deluxe edition seems to suggest :

I believe there was a statement from HarperCollins a while back saying that all deluxe editions would now have their own box for shipping.

Trotter - looks like the UK trade edition of NoMe is a smidge shorter than the recent illustrated editions for S and UT - can you confirm?

It looks the same size to me

and they managed to include J.R.R. Tolkien on the spine.

Thanks! The US/HMH edition is about 1cm (~1/2 inch) shorter.

I think that's part of what I'm most curious about for future releases.
Will HC release a different sized edition in the US or just got with 1 size overall.

Well I got my shipping notifications from Book Depository, so my copies have begun their (no-doubt tortuous) journey to the upside-down. I'm avoiding reviews in the meantime, as I will be reading this in small bites when it arrives (due to time) and will be nice to discover it through my own eyes.
