    FWIW, I just got my copy. I can kind of see what those comments say about the illustrations, a couple are definitely hit and miss, on the whole though I don't see myself being too bothered by it. A couple illustrations are outstanding as well, so...*shrugs*
    It's truly a gorgeous edition and a definite must buy IMO. Especially for folks like me who were late to the party and missed out on the Subpress limited edition and don't have a spare kidney to afford one on the secondary market. It will fill that hole just a little bit.

    I was going to take a bunch of pictures myself, but then I found this Twitter thread from Adam Whitehead (of The Wertzone, the only SF&F blog I follow religiously). I think this will give you a good idea of what to expect from this book.

    It’s a beauty!

    About the YouTube video I posted earlier: for those who aren't up to watching 15 minutes looking at those books, you may be interested in seeing how large the fold-out map is when compared with the books themselves, which is shown at 11:50 (the map is pretty large and colorful).

    My copy arrived. I think we have all seen enough pics now, but I have to say I actually prefer this to the subpress edition (which I ended up selling a while back as I only had GOT and COK and realised I would never complete the set!)
    The lack of signature is absolutely the only negative thing I can say about this.

    Folio did confirm on Twitter that the rest of the series should continue the same look/feel, with COK due in 2020

    Would anyone be interested in a copy of the Map of the World that comes with the Folio Society edition of A Game of Thrones? My original has some very slight damage to one of the folds. It's barely visible when the map is folded out, but I contacted FS about it anyway. They promptly sent out a replacement, so now I have a spare. Also included is a promotional bookmark. It's yours for the cost of shipping (about $30 for US destinations, less for places closer to the Netherlands).

    Ok, whoever wrote this post is lame. Next time I see him I'll let him know.
    Personally, I like to have relevant details at hand when considering a purchase. Haha, sorry for being lazy with my post earlier.
    Matching Meisha Merlin set of A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings, #128. Not perfect, sadly, but beautiful copies nonetheless. A small bump to jacket near head of spine on AGoT, else fine and clean. Fine slipcase. A very small nick to jacket and book at head of spine on ACoK, else fine and clean. Slipcase shows a couple superficial scratches to one side, else fine. See photos below, and don't hesitate to ask if you'd like others.

    Asking $3500 due to scarcity/desirability of matching sets, but would consider reasonable offers. Shipping and insurance included in price. Please PM with other questions. Thanks!
