I bought The Children of Húrin from HarperCollins in the new 'signature' style. You may get the old black edition if you buy from other resellers still.

I don't want them.
I don't want them.
I don't want them.


But these are such stylish editions.

I still, don't want them 😁

They look beautiful, even if CoH is a bit darker than the other two. I've ordered my copy as well

I’m presuming these three are not illustrated? That’ll be the first time for two of these, won’t it?

All three have pencil illustrations by Alan Lee.

Pencil illustrations, but none of the full-color, full-page illustrations correct?

I assumed that would be the case for B&L and FoG since they got new ISBN numbers and CoH reuses the same ISBN from it's non-illustrated edition.

That is correct, no colour illustrations.

The new WM “Great Tales” paperbacks. Pretty identical to the HarperCollins ones with a few subtle changes.

A little disappointed by how plain these are. I like the pop of color, but I was really hoping for a metallic finish there, or gold foil instead of yellow. Not loving the flat red either. I was planning to get these, but I think I'll pass now.
