This is the William Morrow box-set.

Glad these are all paperbacks , as I have a tough time passing on new hardcover versions.

I found a boxed set on a german book online store. The ISBN is 978-0-00-853780-7.

Link: https://www.thalia.de/shop/home/artikeldetails/A1063149298

I wonder what it is, because none of the links provided here shows this ISBN. It seems to be a three-volume boxed set with the new Rings of Power covers and says to be published by HC in September.

The bookstore also lists the regular set that already has been included in this discussion (ISBN: 978-0-00-853775-3; Link to the german bookstore: https://www.thalia.de/shop/home/artikeldetails/A1063149369)

Have you any clue to whether this is a mistake or if there will be another edition? Thank you!

It is always possible that HarperCollins accidentally (or for some subtle reason) had two ISBNs for the boxed set - I am sure it will clear up eventually.

In the meantime, I've added this one to the store/list of forthcoming books for now. Thanks!

The William Morrow LOTR Rings of Power TV tie-in books are out. I picked up these at a local Barnes and Noble in the Philadelphia area.

The paperback one volume omnibus edition has a painting rather than a show still, which I actually kind of like.

I agree Urulókë.

That’s a lovely painting. Looks very Alan Lee but he isn’t associated with ROP. I wonder whose work this is - John Howe perhaps? And which scene does it depict? It looks like the Mirror of Galadriel might be shown there.

I’m fairly certain it is concept art for this scene with Galadriel and Gil-Galad from the show

Looks like minor differences between the UK and US covers, not really sure why.

I would be very interested to know the spine of the UK one if any of you buy it. I like the cover very much.
