I will be trying to get an edition with a larger print of all the letters and envelopes so I can read and see the details. Many of the pictures are rather small and their accompanying text even tinier. That is my only gripe about this edition (though I don’t see how they could have got around it).

Hmm, they could have just made it a much larger format edition like they used to publish it in, rather than making it in a format that isn't especially suitable (albeit one normalised by the previous standard release)......

The good thing is the last sensible sized HC hardback edition (with the blue cover) is regularly available on ebay for next to nothing.

A neat method to do it, could have been to use the same dimensions as The Maps of Middle-earth set by Howe + Sibley; yet make it clothbound and, well, deluxe. There could be a book, and the letters that already existed in the pull-out format.
