I have located paperback copies of The Silmarillion in the latest cover design - Taniquetil with the blue moon behind - in both A-Format and B-Format.

Has anybody seen the equivalent covers for The Hobbit, FR, TT & RK in A-Format?

Deagol, does the smaller A-Format (which I don't have yet) have the same ISBN as the old A-Format Silmarillion from 1999; and does it continue with the impression numbering?

A 67th impression?! It's amazing that they're still running this impression numbering from nearly 15 years ago.

I'd seen the cover illustration for the A-format Silmarillion, but I wasn't sure if it was really being used for a book. I guess it is.

I've recently seen an illustration in a similar style for Unfinished Tales, but I wasn't aware of a new edition. Anyone know if this is genuine, or just a misleading stock image?

The ISBN is for the illustrated paperback edition of UT, so it may be an image error as the cover changes have not affected the illustrated editions as far as I know.

I have now found the equivalent A-Format edition of The Hobbit - ISBN 9780261102217 - mine is a 115th impression of the "2006 Edition".
