It looks like I have the distinction of having produced the thickest Easton Press Tolkien volume (and certainly the densest ).

Can confirm that NoME is the thickest of the Easton Press books in my collection, at a full 2 inches.
Next thickest is the Beowulf, Unfinished Tales, and Return of the King volumes all at 1 7/8 inches. Fantastic achievement Aelfwine

The real question is, are they any Tolkien volumes that Easton Press have not yet done, that could take away Aelfwine's record? History of the Hobbit, cough.

Haha a fully leather bound HoTH? It would need a suitcase handle on the spine! Can you imagine. It would need its own shelf for the weight alone

I don't have their HoLOTR set, I would be more interested if they would swap out "The End of the Third Age" with "Sauron Defeated" but I don't think they can, because of their standing publishing agreement with Houghton Mifflin. "Sauron Defeated" has only been published once here in the States.

That was also the disappointment with the HM trade paperback set even though it makes a certain sense given the scope, LR history. Still there is the HM hardback Sauron Defeated.
