This painting is absolutely fantastic. Alan Lee truly is a master of watercolour painting.
I can see he's continuing to add some ornaments to the borders, like he did for the new Folio Society edition. PErsonally I like it a lot.

I agree !
Passionate about mountains (I have always lived in the mountains in the northern Alps) and practicing mountaineering, I'm particularly sensitive to illustrations that take place in the mountains and I must say that I really like the atmosphere of this painting

Looks like a beauty. I like what they are doing with the endpapers.

The preorder for the audiobook was available at the same time of the actual books and they did predict it was available on the same day as the book publication in November. It has now been revised to say February next year.

This was posted on Facebook by David Brawn (HarperCollins). It was a comment on a long thread, and now I can’t find the original to link to it, sorry.

Love the colour of the deluxe. Was waiting for a dark orange / rust colour in this collection for a long time !
