I bought this because I wanted to give something close to my old edition of the same (now probably 20-30 years old or so and in tatters) to my daughter. Just like the original edition, with Tolkien's illustrations in color and two-tone. Beautifully designed slipcover and layout perfect for lovers of this Tolkien classic!
I bought this as a Christmas present for my 20 year old daughter and when she opened the gift she couldn't wait to read it. I loved the look and details of the book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read and collect nice books.
Gorgeous looking book with the most lovely lino cut illustrations in beautiful colours. Bought it for a 30th birthday present and the recipient was very pleased as it looked so special. The story is a classic and this book makes it feel one. Rather keen to get a copy myself now!
