Thank you for the reference. It looks like a great production. While out of my price range, for folks who adore Tolkein this looks like a nice set.
I expect they will eventually add The Hobbit in a matching series with these three, as any LOTR collection is incomplete without that book.
Folio continues to overcharge their American customers, in this case by $200 over the current exchange rate.
>4 jroger1: It is getting a pretty big (and unexpected) amount of criticism, though I expect a fair amount of this is sour grapes from folks who can't afford the edition and had hoped to purchase one.
As far as the exchange rate, that is quite annoying, and it seems that FS does this on their Canadian and Australian sites, as well. I expect they do it to protect themselves from fluctuations in the currency exchange rates since they're routinely selling items at fixed prices outside of their home currency, but on a purchase this size, the discrepancy is quite annoying.

I love Foilio’s website! So much better than EP. That said - Their books are just not my style. I think they are extremely well done and their quality seems to be on par as well (from what I’ve read as I don’t own any).
These days the numbered limitation of books like this seems to be rising. Having them limited to 1000 I think is right on the fence. Not too much and not too little. The lower the number the higher the price tends to be.
If this was a subject that was more dear to me and a style that was more to my liking, I wouldn’t hesitate!
Whoever decides to purchase them, please post pictures “of your precious”
The cloth covered map is printed on really nice "canvas" like paper. My only gripe is that the maps are fairly small. The maps are exactly the same as the ones in my 50th anniversary edition, but about 1/2 scale. They would have made nice end papers as well.
I have many EP DLEs and would like to see EP create some Tokien DLEs.
