    Thanks. I'll see what I can find and maybe come up with a rough draft that everyone can add their two cents to.

    Not a great picture taker. Got cases for my SILMARILLION and Unfinished Tales. Love them. Fit perfectly.

    It's looks very nice, but at $1500 I passed. 1000 other people chose differently.

    As much a fan I am of the Alan Lee illustrated 3 volume LOTR sets- this was an instant HARD pass for me at $1500. Half that price would give me pause. I guess Folio will keep ramping up their prices on these Limited Editions as long as suckers (sorry, I mean "Collectors") lap them up and sell them out within hours. I'm still delightfully happy with my regular old $100 gorgeous oversize set- which I still consider one of the nicest set of books ever.

    For the Hobbit fan who has just about everything, except...

    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    It looks interesting, similar in nature to the Great Tales volumes.

    Looking at some of the videos, these slipcased illustrated editions aren't that great looking. I prefer the way the standard deluxe editions look.
