It isn't just HarperCollins pushing Chinese-printed dreck - Check out the images of the Chinese Folio Silmarillion.

I recently bought the Folio Editions. Sil is a 20th printing, Hobbit is a 19th printing, and LOTR is an 18th printing. I wonder why they switched to China...probably cost. I am enjoying them very much, but I do wish they were printed in the UK as well.
