Who is it printed by? (I got rid of FB years ago, so obviously can't see any postings)

Someone has posted the copyright page of the new illustrated deluxe edition of UT on Tolkien Society's FB page.
The copyright page states :

This illustrated de luxe slipcased edition published by HarperCollinsPublishers 2020

First published in hardback by HarperCollinsPublishers 1992

First published in Great Britain by Unwin Hyman 1980 [here is the error]

And by the way :

Printed and bound in Italy by Rotolito S.p.A

That was just a typo by emilien so I've gone ahead and fixed it.

Also, facebook evidence seems to indicate that the deluxe edition comes in a brown cardboard protective box, with a label and upc code sticker on it.

I saw that as well! I know The Lord of the Rings illustrated omnibus edition from 2014 had one, and I'm fairly certain the The Children of Hurin and The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun Limited Editions did, as well.

Thank you Trotter !
That looks nice, I'm still wondering - even if this edition is not part of the deluxe series - if the Tolkien monogram on the spine will line up with the others.
I also hope that John Howe's nazgul on front cover will not be badly centered on some copies...
