Books arrived today. Apologies - old set still in shrinkwrap - so no pics of direct comparison of front & rear covers.

New Books (Paper Over Boards) - Slightly smaller in height. Text Colour on Spine slightly different on all 3. Boards colour of ROTK different (Blue rather than green).

I have added my picture of the 2013 covers with remy's picture to give a cover comparision.

If this comes out in a box-set then I will probably get a copy.

What matters to me more than the fabric covering the boards, whether actual cloth or something else, is the binding, i.e. sewn signatures or perfect binding, and the quality of the paper.
