Is it me, or is this Folio Society 1st "Hobbit" a lighter shade of brown than normal?

It's just you!

Naw, even if it does appear lighter, probably just the photograph, rather than the actual book; or at least that would be my first guess.

We were initially interested in a Ballantine Hobbit/LR set which sold on eBay yesterday, because the photo showed it in a light metallic blue box, we don't have this set in a blue box, and long ago we had heard a rumour of a blue box. But we queried before the auction and learned that the box was actually gold, the photo had just come out wrong.

i was the one that ended up getting this book, so i will let you know if it is a lighter shade or as i suspect just the lighting effect that is from the flash on the camera. The photo of this book on Tolkien books looks very much the same as well.

I bought a copy of the lord of the rings 1997 deluxe Indian paper edition with the quarter leather, which on the photo appeared to be brown, but as we know is black. I was a little anxious but the ebayer assured me it was just the flash and luckily for me it was, so i am hoping the same will happen this time.
